I believe the ORD/IRD fields in the MPAv2 messages need to be in Network 
Byte Order.  This is not mandated in the draft.

I also think there is an oversight in RFC 5044 with regard to the 
PD_Length field in the MPAv1 messages.  It should also be in Network 
Byte Order, but I don't see this requirement anywhere in the RFC.

Or maybe NBO is a always assumed in IETF wire-protocol messages?
