I'm with @kazuho here.  As a client, if you send at 1350 and those are all dropped, that reduces to "the path doesn't support UDP".  The real risk is if you send at 1200 and then increase that later without first probing.

I'm happy to take this as editorial, but would prefer to confirm that no one wants a substantive change.
