I care about a deployment where we will assume sending large packets is
supported and where that's reasonable.
I've explained in the draft why I think there are cases where this is a
reasonable assumption.

I've also explained why  I think there is no significant harm to the
approach outlined in the draft.

we are not in agreement on this issue, and the chairs will need to judge
consensus on whether a change is required or on whether this should
block adoption.

thanks for sharing your concern.
