Cheng, We run this in production at Limelight Networks (i.e toward a broad spectrum of Internet hosts) and must to deal with some uncommon network topology. There are currently some limitations as you point out.
Like you say the signaling is not perfect and we do often clamp MSS unnecessarily. There is also no probing to see if we can expand the MSS later. I think those issues should be fixed up before it's enabled by default and I don't know anyone working on it at the moment.
