Heck, I'm not sure *I* understand the question. Perhaps this is
because I've yet to see an application that uses ICMP for anything,
arguably aside from ping/traceroute (which to me are diagnostic tools
rather than applications). Perhaps it's because I'm not sure what kind
of statefulness even makes sense for ICMP applications, assuming they
exist. Perhaps there's something else I'm missing....
