"If intermediate reassembly is not allowed, the datagram must eventually be fragmented to the smallest allowable size along the route. Once the datagram has passed through the network that imposes the smallest-size restriction, the fragments may be unnecessarily small for later networks, degrading performance. On the other hand, intermediate reassembly requires compute and buffer resources at the intermediate routers. Furthermore, all fragments of a given original datagram would have to pass through the same intermediate node for reassembly, which would prohibit dynamic routing."
