A better question to be asking yourself is why do you feel you
need to break the packet up any SMALLER than 512 bytes?

What's the reason for requiring that the first partial length be so long?
512 octets is considerably more than the headers, IV, etc of any data
packet would be.

I suggest that the following text:
An implementation MAY use Partial Body Lengths for data packets,
they literal, compressed, or encrypted. The first partial length
be at least 512 octets long. Partial Body Lengths MUST NOT be
for any other packet types.
Note also that the last Body Length header can be a zero-length
be moved from 4.2.3 to section 18.104.22.168, Partial Body Lengths.
moved the "Note also" sentence to after the paragraph as you see.
I moved them.
