Be warned that the RFCs specify a minimum reassembly buffer size (EMTU_R)
of 576 bytes. This means that implementations that can't receive or
reassemble a datagram of this size can't expect to successfully
interoperate with other RFC-compliant internet hosts.

See RFC 1122 section 3.3.2 for the requirement and justification.
