It MUST NOT add any <rtcp-fb/> element that was not offered by the initiator. It MUST NOT modify the 'value' of any <rtcp-fb-trr-int/> element. It can only remove the <rtcp-fb-trr-int/> element or reject the content. If all the feedback messages are removed but the responder wants to stay in the RTP/AVPF profile, it MUST put a <rtcp-fb-trr-int/> element with the same 'value' that it received from the intiator, if the initiator did not provide a <rtcp-fb-trr-int/> element, then this value is "0".

I’m happy with either solution. The above text is fine by me.
