Re: As Donald Knuth says

But this one is not premature so the saying doesn't apply.

It seems to be a missing enum value, rather

When going to the network:

> CHECKSUM_UNDEFINED_AS_YET

> CHECKSUM_UNNECESSARY_BUT_CAN_BE_DONE

> CHECKSUM_TO_BE_DONE_BY_HARDWARE

> CHECKSUM_ALREADY_DONE_BY_SOFTWARE

When coming from the network:

> CHECKSUM_UNVERIFIED_AS_YET

> CHECKSUM_VERIFIED_BY_HARDWARE_AND_PASSED

> CHECKSUM_VERIFIED_BY_HARDWARE_AND_FAILED

> CHECKSUM_VERIFIED_BY_SOFTWARE_AND_PASSED

> CHECKSUM_VERIFIED_BY_SOFTWARE_AND_FAILED

Probably not possible to implement these because of reasons, but still.
