I don't think that effort will be necessary or even legal. The requestor 
will react to the redirection with another Get(ClassPortInfo) to the 
redirection target, which will reply with its own RespTimeValue, so our 
driver should speak for itself. Since we don't know when our MAD 
processing and sending of the response is going to be scheduled (we're not 
running on real-time constraints here), we play it safe and return 18, 
which amounts to roughly a second. 

Make sense?
