I'm working with our hardware vendor that does DoS mitigation for Azure. Give me a little time and I'll try to get back to you with data.

Also, as far as the cost to the client for Retry, IMO, the higher the better. The goal in this scenario is to make it more expensive for attackers who are spamming initial packets. For a normal client creating a single connection, the cost is insignificant as ekr points out.
