Wasted space question

Hello guys. I have "theoretical" question about JFFS2.

Perhaps, my question is for David, but will be glad if somebody else 
reply too.

Exploring JFFS2 sources I can't realize what is *wasted space* ? Dirty 
space is anything within block excluding valid nodes (no more used clean 
markers, pad nodes, paddings with JFFS2_DIRTY_BITMASK, obsoleted nodes). 
But what is *wasted space*. For what is it used?

Thanrs in advance.

Best Regards,
