Would it make sense to reserve space for additional metadata by reducing
the required initial packet size to, say 1000 octets in order to allow for
a smaller PMTU than the actual PMTU?

This could simplify tunnelling and monitoring, and also other cases where
multiple servers cooperate on handling a single connection.
