IPv6 fragmentation

Hi;

Could i have answers about the following:

1- Is this the reason of why IPsec pre-fragmentation feature can't be supported for IPv6, and the fragmentation by the IPv6 packet sender before IPsec encryption doesn't considered as pre-fragmentation because the fragmentation doesn't done by the IPsec encapsulator before encapsulation?

2- Who could reassemble the IPv6 fragmented packets (the receiving router, the receiving peer or any of them)?

3- Could a tunnel have the packet sender peer on the sending end instead of the source router in a case or having the receiving peer on the receiving end instead of the receiving router in other case ?

4- Doesn't IPsec post fragmentation allowed for IPv6 packets in the tunnel mode due to the reason that IPv6 fragmentation is allowed only by packet sender?

5- Why doesn't the IPsec transport mode carry the IPv6 fragments?

Rose.
