RDM Packets with the Discovery Command Class are never sent over the E1.33 network.

Each E1.33 device that acts as a gateway to a RS485 DMX/RDM link is responsible for performing discovery on the RS485 links that are plugged into the gateway. The gateway discovers the responders, mutes them, and tracks as devices are added and removed.

The E1.33 controller then uses the GET PROXIED_DEVICE_COUNT and GET PROXIED_DEVICES PIDs from E1.20 to get the list of devices that are attached to each gateway.

The "BINDING_CONTROL_FIELDS" PID was added to E1.33 as a way to get the information that's normally contained in the Mute Response (bootloader flag, Binding UID, etc).
