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?
