Well, It did the right thing consistently for some years with  
messages much larger that can be carried in a single LAN packet.  
Personally I would take that as greater proof than reading it in the  

Others of a different persuasion would believe that if it was not  
written in the documentation then I had in fact created a timebomb  
guaranteed to fail at the worst possible moment in the future !

Only Ericsson can make any documented guarantees about the default  
system, not even Tony can provide anything other that a statement of  
his intent when he wrote it.
