RE: RUNT Packets

A minimum frame size was established at 10 Mb/s to assure that collisions
were detected.  Shorter "runt" frames are an error and are commonly counted
and monitored in management databases.  In the desire to maintain
consistency over all speeds of ethernet, we should attempt to preserve
similar error properties.  If the RS turns an error created by transmission
noise into a protocol error (e.g., runt frame) we are violating the
objective to make things look the same.
