I think it is important to remember that this draft is about *IP* layer
fragmentation. Tunnels can employ tunnel-layer fragmentation at a
layer above IP:

https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-intarea-gue-extensions/
https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-templin-intarea-grefrag/

Or, if the draft intends to also cover tunnel-layer fragmentation it
should probably be updated to say so. 

Thanks - Fred
