Should protocols such as CTP continue to work if the am address is changed?

What are the minimum conditions/events under which protocols should just work?

If that set of conditions is too large it might be too much burden.

Here are some repercussions:

FTSP - information who the root could be invalid. could force new election.
CTP - have to flush the link/routing table. Other nodes might have to
wait for state expiration.
MultihopLQI - invalid parent information.
Drip - conflicts in <nodeid,seq>
etc.

Should these protocols just boot up when ActiveMessageAddress.changed
is signaled?
