On consideration, I think that the requirement is simple and we don't have to stress about interactions with discarding keys.  If the packet contains an Initial, it's possible that the Initial packet is the only packet that can be used by a server.  Therefore, the datagram should be padded to 1200, regardless of whatever else is included.

So we strike the "only" and we're good.  See 6cfcbe26385f17072ccd330aea619f65bf3bdcb4.
