That is the response I was looking for. I knew they were protocol proposal
to achieve multicasting (MOLSR, MAODV comes to mind), beside the original
broadcast idea from Andreas, but could not find a clear answer about simple
broadcast. In a way that is strange because broadcast is maybe *the* 
block that every ad hoc routing protocol have in common.

Thanks for making clear a fuzzy idea
