That's odd, since it should only be tracking READ_RESPONSE messages... I'm
not sure how a node would send one to itself.

Ah, I see what you want to do: take a chance that you pick the two replicas
(at RF=3, at least) that should agree, and only send the last checksum
request if you lose (at the price of latency.)
