Protocol Identification

Non-TCP packets with IP headers will be transmitted by DUAL using the PR_IP protocol format. Any TCP packets that are given to the header compression scheme for compression will be transmitted using the PR_CIP protocol format. This includes uncompressed packets, such as:

Therefore an implementation of DUAL with PR_CIP must also implement PR_IP.
