From the Bluetooth HID spec:

The implementation of L2CAP on the host should meet the default minimum MTU (maximum transmission unit) of 48 bytes, although the default value of 672 is recommended.

The default minimum maximum transmission unit? I can understand maximum transmission unit. I can sort of see the point of a minimum maximum transmission unit. But a default minimum maximum transmission unit makes my brain explode. And that has a default value too. So would that be the default default minimum maximum transmission unit? Or just the default default maximum transmission unit? Or maybe it's the default minimum default transmission unit!

It's like those trucks I see around town from FedEx Express (i.e. Federal Express Express). They should have just gone with FedEx2.

Does that not expand to Federal2 + 2FederalExpress + Express2?

I kid, I kid - I still somehow remember order of precedence... :P
