Section 6.1.7 says:
6.1.7. Predictive Loop Avoidance
It should say:
6.1.7. Predictive Loop Detection and termination
one full cycle of loop execution happens before route record is identified and loop being realized. A scenario example where two Diameter Agents are configured to do precedence based routing to two different hss and where as if hss otherwise does loadshare using 4 different links each in such cases loop can even be reach stage 2 before being realized therefore it doesn't qualify the avoidance or prevention rather detection and termination. thanks.
There is no need or benefit from this change.
