Steve and all responders,

Thanks for the responses it made things more clear.  I think we are
moving much up to the transport.  Another example is PMTU Discovery. I
am designing a Host now that completely will use PMTU in a lab
environment.  But NFS and a well known database application use UDP and
insist on big packets.  I am covering it at the transport layer.  

thanks again,
