Why does an OSPF neighbor relationship between two S series switches remain in the 2-Way state

Question: Why are Full/DR, FULL/BDR, and 2-WAY/DR OTHER displayed in the display ospf peer command output?

A: To reduce broadcast network (such as the Ethernet, FDDI, and token ring network) media to be flooded, only the DR and BDR can establish Full neighbor relationships with DR Others. The neighbor relationship between two DR Others remains in the 2-Way state.
