Thanks for comments Peter.

DMX signal loss behavior is different in almost every product...
I think even with IDENTIFY_DEVICE=0 , DMX signal timeout behaviour of LED fixtures maybe confusing.
I imagine during an RDM setup session, controller sets only one of responders IDENTIFY_DEVICE=1 and clears other responders.
after desired timeout , the one with IDENTIFY_DEVICE=1 remains in identify mode and all other fixtures with IDENTIFY_DEVICE=0 start glowing demo/default mode and bother user sight.

to avoid this situation, maybe the responder somehow ought to detect the RDM setup is runnig and never start demo/default mode even with IDENTIFY_DEVICE=0
for example after receiving DISC_MUTE command, the responder would cancel demo mode until next restart. etc.
