Just a question on specific word usage: where you have "A ... ​frame of a
length other than ..." I'd have used "... frame with a length ...". It
hints a bit more strongly that the "length" to which we refer is the field
-- which, as was mentioned in a thread a while back, is actually the length
of the payload, not the length of the frame *per se*.

That's just me, though. If you disagree, I'm happy with the change.

(Also I haven't scanned for other usages, to see if that would introduce
inconsistency or an annoyingly large changeset.)
