But what about the customers that use recursive nameservers, does it make
sense for them to block fragments at the edge and even on the other side of
the link at the edge?

No, no, no.  They'll break the Internet if they do that.

My point was in response to Florian's - Florian is right that conceptually,
fragmentation as it was implemented is a bag of hurt.  But with the TCP/IP
we have, we *must* allow fragments through, or we break the Internet.
