What's a "NSP"?

If you mean the Message-ID (MID) overwriting:  should the remote host
send back the MID like when none is given in the original article,
leafnode could use that information.  If the remote host doesn't,
leafnode cannot store or map the MID and thus will never know if it has
already seen a particular article.
