First, merging this PR should IMO not be about the need for this counter in some individual experiments. Second, we never actually used this metric. Personally, I only look at this counter ( next to CSMA failure counter) to get an idea about link quality. Third, this event does not actually reflect the number of missing ACKs (as explained above) and it is very hardware specific, so I was even wondering weather we should implement this in a hardware specific module. 

As a compromise: What if we name it "experimental" and document it somehow?
@jia200x can you please state your opinion here?
