   This document provides a simple method to forwarding 6LoWPAN
   fragments.  When employing adaptation layer fragmentation in 6LoWPAN,
   it may be beneficial for a forwarder not to have to reassemble each
   packet in its entirety before forwarding it.  This has always been
   possible with the original fragmentation design of RFC4944.  This
   method reduces the latency and increases end-to-end reliability in
   route-over forwarding.  It is the companion to the virtual Reassembly
   Buffer which is a pure implementation technique.
