I'm not sure I understand the use case? Either PMTUD works through the
tunnel and you can just let that do its job, or it doesn't and you have
to do out-of-band discovery anyway in which case you can just use the
FIB route MTU? Or what do you mean by "usable on the rest of the route"?

What "in-band per-peer PMTUD mechanism"? And why does it need this?
