+	The DATA messages are used to carry bursts in both directions
+	between L1 and TRX. There exist two kinds of them:
+
+	  - L12TRX (L1 -> TRX) - to be transmitted bursts,
+	  - TRX2L1 (TRX -> L1) - received bursts.
+
+	Both of them have quite similar structure, and start with
+	the common fixed-size message header (no TLVs):
+
+	  +---------------+-----------------+------------+
+	  | common header | specific header | burst bits |
+	  +---------------+-----------------+------------+
+
+	while the message specific headers and bit types are different.
+
+	The common header is represented by this class, which is the
+	parent of both DATAMSG_L12TRX and DATAMSG_TRX2L2 (see below),
+	and has the following fields:
+
+	  +--------------+-------------------+
+	  | TN (1 octet) | FN (4 octets, BE) |
+	  +--------------+-------------------+
+
+	where:
+
+	  - TN is TDMA time-slot number (1 octet), and
+	  - FN is TDMA frame number (4 octets, big endian).
