Bill,
Usually the Internet core routers try to keep IP packets reletivly
have the same size or without Option's field in order switch packets
in the hardware roueter backplane.  Ther are many studies will be 
reflected one way or another on the IP packet size. One of them 
might be found on the URL http://diffserv.Ics.mit.edu.

Anyone know of any studies documenting this?  A know that IP packets
over the Internet tend to be smaller rather than larger, but I wondered
if anyone has published something.
