You should make a “0 fee tx with exactly one OP_TRUE output” standard, but 
nothing else. This makes sure CPFP will always be needed, so the OP_TRUE output 
won’t pollute the UTXO set

Instead, would you consider to use ANYONECANPAY to sign the tx, so it is 
possible add more inputs for fees? The total tx size is bigger than the OP_TRUE 
approach, but you don’t need to ask for any protocol change.

In long-term, I think the right way is to have a more flexible SIGHASH system 
to allow people to add more inputs and outputs easily.
