As I understand it, a node which is in the midst of a "repair" operation 
is actually in a meaningfully different state from a node which is 
bootstrapping. The "repair"ing node can serve blank (?) data in the case 
where it is asked for data it should have but doesn't yet, with a 
ConsistencyLevel of ONE. AFAIK, there is no way to make a bootstrapping 
node return invalid responses in this way.

Any details from people who are more familiar with the particular code 
path in question would of course be appreciated. :)
