RFC 1122 And the trailer protocol

WHile this post is not a 100% Linux question, it is a 100% networking question. So hopefully someone can be sharp enough to help me out here. In RFC1122 section 2.3.1 there is a discussion on the trailer protocol. The RFC states and i quote

"Only packets with specific size attributes are encapsulated using trailer, and typically only a small fraction of the packets being exchanged have these attributes"

Can someone explain these attributes or specific frame sizes needed to use this trailer option in the link layer? Thanks alot.
