How then further transactions can happen without waiting for the secret R? Does it mean that the HTLC contracts get simply "carried over" in the subsequent transactions between A and B? Yes, that is correct. You go on adding HLTC outputs in the commitment transactions as more and more HTLCs are added, and delete those HTLCs that are either fullfiled with a ...
