@martinthomson I always assumed this was the equivalent of the TCP MSS option, rather than something to do with AEAD. Even if we decide to do nothing else, we should probably add some more text about what this is communicating and how to set it. But now the last sentence about unprotected packets make sense, so thanks for the insight.

But it seems we're converging on a TCP MSS-like purpose instead.
