as per my understanding , RLC sequence numbers are used to make sure ARQ functionality and sequence delivery to PDCP. PDCP SN is used to make sure of sequence delivery in handover case and other cell switchover scenario.

As RLC layer Seq. numbering is used to keep a track of packets to ARQ and PDCP, then SN should be given to RLC PDU, otherwise how it will happen in case of Segmentation and Re-segmentation?
