In reading the I-D, it says on page 8:
An IFD can be at
any location in the file after the header but must begin on a word
However, I do not find anywhere whether a word is two bytes or four bytes.
If a sender assumed two byte alignment but sends to a 32-bit architecture
receiver that assumes four byte alignment, this could cause an
interoperability problem if the 32-bit architecture doesn't allow unaligned
Should I make a public comment to the IETF during this IETF Last Call?
