This change does two things:
1. Clarify that if UDP datagram contains Initial packets, it must be at least 1200 bytes in size; and
1. Rule out padding the UDP datagram with junk (the "padding *packets*" part) as @nibanks suggested earlier.

Issue #2519 is only about (1).  Not that I am against (2), but this is just so that we are clear.
