I don't agree with this.
Normal traffic on a well setup network should not include large numbers of
fragmented packets. But I have seen too many networks that fragment almost
everything as a result of there being a hop that goes through one or more
tunneling layers that lower the effective MTU (and no, path mtu discovery does
not always work)
