Most of the splitters available out there that are RDM compliant do not act as Proxies. There was a lot of work done by the Task Group to make it possible to do splitter implementations that required minimal logic.

The timings are all based on giving splitters time to turn the wire around and the Discovery messages have the pre-amble that allow bytes to be dropped from it just for this reason.

At a minimum level you just need to be start code aware to know when to turn the bus around and allow return data back. It's also best if you have some jabber protection in there for a misbehaved link too.
