	But the receiver needs to be able to re-segment the fragments so all required information needs to be there; what about looking at src and dst address and the MF flag in the header as well as the fragment offset and scrape proto/port from the leading fragment and “virtually” apply it to all following fragments, that way cake will do the right thing. All of this might be too costly in implementation and computation to be feasible…
