[zeromq-dev] zbeacon Node Discovery

I use zbeacon(see http://czmq.zeromq.org/manual:zbeacon) to let the 
nodes send their port, so that other nodes can connect to them.

Is there a need to let the nodes to be SILENT after all nodes are 
connected to each other? Or is that no problem, that let's say 100 nodes 
send their ports every second?

if that is a problem, I have something like that in mind. If a node 
starts it publishes it's port for X seconds. After that it goes to 
SILENT mode.

So after a while all nodes are silent and connected to each other.

If a new node starts, it publishes it's port, and all the other nodes 
start to publish their ports again for other X seconds.

Or does it have no impact on the network load at all?
Does this work with IPv6 as well?
