MPRs are only used for flooding OLSR traffic not regular data traffic. The
whole concept of multipoint relaying is to optimize _flooding_ not to
shape normal data traffic.
I agree that IP routes should consider willingness, but MPR selection is
purely based on how many 2-hop nodes a neighbor can reach and makes no
sense in unicast routing.
