Uncluttering gives reduction of bandwidth anyway, so I do not see
much point in the distinction you seem to be making.

"Who speaks first" mentioned in 4. above, was primarily about
"delaying ref advertisement", which would be a larger protocol
change. Nobody seems to have attacked it since it was discussed,
and I was tired of hearing nothing but complaints and whines. This
"hiding refs" series was done as a cheaper way to solve a related
issue, without having to wait for the solution of "delaying
advertisement", which is an orthogonal issue.
