You're having to invent a transport protocol to encapsulate your data 
protocol because you don't otherwise have the information you're after 
(packet length in this case).  This shouldn't be a surprise.

The OSI seven-layer model of networking may be overkill for most 
purposes, but it is worth knowing.  We can often get away with omitting 
layers.  You just hit a case where you can't.
