Except the 10uS delay is commented out, I have no idea what will happen in
that case.

The TX_REUSE feature allows you to send the same payload again, should you
wish to.  I imagine all it does is actually *stops* the packet from being
removed from the FIFO in the event of a successful transmission.  See ch.

it works as is.

No.  See (again) ch. 8 to understand how SPI transactions work: bytes are
sent and received at the same time.
