802.11 fragments

Hi,
It seems 802.11 sends out packet fragments in a reverse order.
That is, the last frag is sent first and the first one (the one with
L3 packet header) is sent last.

I cannot find such behavior specified in the spec but I tried
linksys, dlink products, and ethereal and they seem to operate
based on such assumption.

Anyone knows the rationale behiend? Thanks in advance.

Ted
