Piggy-backing note

Reported by: zach@… Owned by: zach@…

It was brought up in the IETF82 CoAP presentation, that imlpementation issues have been noticed where piggy-backing should have been used to avoid inefficient use of messages. This ticket is to propose some text to provide quality of implementation advice on when to piggy-back responses.

Carsten provided the following text:

"Implementation note: The _protocol_ leaves the decision whether to piggy-back a response or not (i.e., send a separate response) to the server. The client MUST be prepared to receive either. On the _quality of implementation_ level, there is a strong expectation that servers will implement code to piggy-back whenever possible -- saving resources in the network and both at the client and at the server."

Which could be placed at the end of Section 5.2.1.

feedback on the proposed text below.
