The main difference is that p2pd has filter parameters so packets are classified for flooding.
mDNS has a hard-coded filter. A bit ugly.

I can think of a merge with bmf also, where some mcast packets are transfered as OLSR messages (low overhead) and some are send with (encapsulated) IP packets. We need a filter syntax for classification (ignore / OLSR-message /  IP packet).
