There are a number of issues with that RFC, as noted in intarea-tunnels. E.g., it won’t properly do what you say for IPv4 DF=0 (i.e., treat the tunnel as a true link layer by allowing frag at the tunnel header), nor will it correctly interconnect two hosts for packets with TTL/hopcounts fo 0 (which should work - only routers should decrement those).
