So perhaps the reassembly code should take into account the conversation ID (with conversations not taking the wire ID into account) *and* possibly also the wire ID, with a preference to indicate whether to include the wire ID or not (set the preference when there's routing between wires going on, don't set it if, say, wires are being bundled together for greater bandwidth, or different VLANs are being used for upstream and downstream traffic, or...).
