Nits:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

In appendix A:

       		      		   	       	   ^^^^^^^^^^^^^
s/looking valid/valid looking/

--

   ... that allows receiver to determine forgeg fragments and
       	    	   	       		 ^^^^^^
   not to fetch them into the reassempling queue.
       	  ^^^^^
