Hmm... I need to think it over.  Babel is different from OLSR, as Babel
routing messages can be delayed significantly (tens of seconds) and
still be accepted, even not in seqno order, as long as the feasibility
condition is obeyed.

But you're right, there are probably some cases where I can detect an
unexpected seqno and discard the feasibility state; I'll think it over.
