IP Fragmentation - Not reliable over the Internet?

I am trolling for information/community wisdom. 

What is the probability that a random path between two Internet hosts will traverse a middlebox that drops or otherwise barfs on fragmented IPv4 packets?

If anyone has any data or anecdotes, please feel free to send an off-list email or whatever. 

Thanks!
