What is your interpretation of clear.  The "word" alignment corresponds to the
value termed "A" in Figure 1, but there's nothing to show that "A" is aligned
on a 2-byte boundary.

If, however, the fact that all parcels of information seem to be in 2-byte
blocks, then you might be right.  But one could only imply from the fact that
all of their little boxes are 2-byte boxes, whether filled in with solid or
dashed lines.
