I was considering that if pairing is allowed and security is either
medium or high, then we force a repairing if the link key is temporary.

Something like in the area of a no bonding link key is only allowed to
connect a security low service. And if pairing is not allowed and you
try to access a medium or high security service with no bonding, you
will just get rejected.
