Hello intervals are important for discovery time of new links. Long intervals 
mean longer time to discover/loose links, small intervals spam traffic.

Hello timeouts are similar for link cleanup (how long does it take to forget a 
link completely), but they are not as important as intervals because of the 
ETX implementation.

We have plans to change the hello intervals depending on the mobility of a 
node, but there are other concepts to use "stability of links" as a 
measurement for hello intervals.
