This document provides generic rules to enable the forwarding of an
IPv6 over Low-Power Wireless Personal Area Network (6LoWPAN) fragment
over a route-over network. Forwarding fragments can improve both
end-to-end latency and reliability as well as reduce the buffer
requirements in intermediate nodes; it may be implemented using RFC
4944 and Virtual Reassembly Buffers (VRBs).

This document is a product of the IPv6 over Networks of Resource-constrained Nodes Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet Standards Track
protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
Internet Protocol Standards (https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the 
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this 
memo is unlimited.
