The size of a packet number is hidden. Given that most packets are full
sized, the only effect on those would be less available space for payload.
ACK packets would increase in size by a couple of octets, which could be
masked easily and cheaply if necessary.

I’d challenge that, especially in the cases where it matters most: long
running mobility applications. For example a car management system that
uploads battery and other operational statistics, geofencing applications,
or chat applications used by train commuters.
