Hello, Eduard,

I agree that we should probably say more about fragmentation. However, 
it would seem to me that this should be part of Section 6.1 (and maybe 
add a few more words to Section 6.4).

That is, fragmentation is one special case where it may be impossible 
for systems to find the upper-layer information -- so it would seem to 
fit in Section Section 6.1.

Thoughts?

Thanks,
