stretch ratio control for a short packet size

Title: stretch ratio control for a short packet size


The section 4.2.8 of IEEE Draft P802.3ae/D2.1 describes how to calculate a number of idle bytes that should be inserted between frames when stretch ratio control is enabled. The equation includes padSize and crcSize. This seems to imply that the equation can be used for a packet of which length is equal to or more than 64 byte.

If we disable padding in certain application, total bytes in a packet could be less than 64. For such a short packet, the equation specified in that section can be still applied?
