       The approach that has been taken in the draft is not to invoke the Information Configuraton

        Behaviour, when Host Configuration Behaviour is being invoked. This is true even both

        M and O flags are set and both the policies are either 1 and 2.

        So the issue here is, whether need to invoke the Information Configuration Behaviour

        in case the Host Configuration Behaviour fails irrespective of the O flag and its policy.

        As you suggested, one could implement fall back to ke the Information Configuration Behaviour

        if e Host Configuration Behaviour fails.
