2147    Borman          May 97  TCP and UDP over IPv6 Jumbograms

IPv6 supports datagrams larger than 65535 bytes long, often referred to
as jumbograms, through use of the Jumbo Payload hop-by-hop option.  The
UDP protocol has a 16-bit length field that keeps it from being able to
make use of jumbograms, and though TCP does not have a length field,
both the MSS option and the Urgent field are constrained by 16-bits.
