Yes I know about protocols, I'm a teco engineer.
That same congestion you talk about, is already present in the current networks we are building. So, I don't believe it's a real limitation.
There are critical task in home automation that needs messages confirmation or to resend (as TCP does), but there are many more, the vast majority, that doesn't need confirmation. Who would bother to lose a humidity reading.
Offcourse. We agree. Those mode critical messages/commands should be send with the ack bit enabled so as to receive delivery confirmation, and if not, to resend.

I think most of the problems could be overcome, but they will take time and effort, which would take away from other projects unless a volunteer comes forward. Im not ready for something like this yet, so I should propbably keep my mouth shut.
@gohan said in Concept: Proxy Node: multi protocol proxy:
Right, since this is community driven project it is difficult to put all that effort into it given that developers have their lives like everybody else
Again, we agree. It's just a concept that I would like to share. Nothing else. We all have many things to do in life and in MySensors as well, but I believe talking about this kind of things, slowly builds the idea in our heads, and may be prone to guide the platform development into it or some other great ideas.
What today seems overkill or impossible, tomorrow we'll see.
Thanks for your comments.
