Aha... So your take on this is that TCs should only be sent by MPR 
selected nodes.
Ok - I have interprated this differently, but I agree that the RFC is 
not totall clear
at this point. Still, my opinion on this remains that TC emission is not 
by checkig if the node is selected as MPR but rather by building TC messages
according to the TC redundancy setting and emit the message if it has any
nodes included(wit the exception of the emtpy TC emission interval)
