It might be simpler to require every UDP packet that contains an Initial be padded to at least 1200?

I'm worried that only requiring that of Initial if there is no Handshake/1-RTT present might be tricky on the receiver: what do I do if I receive a non-padded Initial with Handshake but I can't decrypt the Handshake data?
