  indicates that >40% of the packets out there are 40 bytes. 

One of the nice things about proxy servers and web caches is
they mask end user host stack inadequacy, and thus (I allege)
tend to increase MTUs and encourage better network utilization
(in additional to the normal benefits of caching).

Isn't it unsurpsrising that >40% of packets are small? ACKs?
