Quite a nice PR, however I do have conceptual objections to the idea of introducing yet another set of messages, and yet more information we need to keep track of. The whole gossip protocol is quickly devolving into a game of whack-a-mole and premature optimizations.
I'd very much prefer throwing everything overboard and going back to the drawing board, to create a sensible and permanent solution, rather than hacking more and more things on what was supposed to be the first simple iteration of the gossip protocol.
So from my side this is a NACK. I see the issues you are facing with resource limited devices, but adding these incremental hacks is not the way to go.
