I did get confused by that.  I parsed that the LPD field is specified by
LAPDm (TS 04.06), and it indicates a possible sublayer.

Now that I re-read 04.06, it does say that only LPD=00 is valid for
LAPDm, so other values must be other protocols.


That all makes sense, I'll give it a try.

Thanks for the feedback.
