I don't think that there is a misunderstanding.  Whenever you have
both "you should do X" and "I'm doing X" conflated as this does,
negotiation is a naturally emergent property.  So you get a push and
the server says that it is p3, but you want it to be p7, what happens
is a negotiation, no matter how hard you say it isn't.
