Groupcomm: if possible, include guidelines on when (not) to use CoAP response to multicast request; based on review comments Peter vd Stok. core-coap indicates that a server MAY suppress a response to a multicast but it may be helpful to indicate in detail when the server should or should not do this.

Proposed resolution is to add a section on Multicast Request and Response Suppression. First, this section briefly lists all normative requirements on accepting requests (or not) and sending responses (or not).
Second, this new section will list most common multicast usages briefly and for each usage, provide a guideline for the various types of responses (2.xx, 4.xx, 5.xx, empty-payload, ...)when responses should be suppressed and when not.
