suggestion for naming UPDATE packets

From Baris Boyvat: "There is always three UPDATE packet sent for a mobility event. In HIPL
this fact was not explicitly used in the implementation before, which
made the implementation quite complex. I would suggest to explicitly
quality the UPDATE packets numbers, etc. UPDATE1, UPDATE2, UPDATE3
which would in a way force people to think in that terms.

Otherwise, when dealing with different UPDATE scenarios, SEQ, ACK handling,
retransmissions,etc conceptualization become very difficult. Actually
if possible,
I would suggest to nicely separate these concepts so that they can be
easily modularized in an implementation. I'm not sure, it's common for RFCs
but this can be done in a "implementation recommendation" form."
