"Tell X where I am" messages
Open, To DoPublic

Description

If the protocol is to be used in the personal server model by people with dynamic IP addresses, often behind NATs, then they're going to need a way to reestablish communication with each other if they happen to change IP addresses at the same time. To achieve this, they could send a message saying, effectively, "tell so-and-so where I am", preferably to someone likely to communicate with that peer, such as one of its relays.

This could double as a way to ask "tell me where I am", for instances behind NAT that don't know their own public IP address and port.
