So the "fix" is to just let PMTUD die for IPv6 too?  Or should blackholing
anyone dropping ICMPv6 Packet Too Big errors be considered a feature

Forget about "World IPv6 Day".  We need a "World Path MTU Day", where
everyone running a public service of some kind lowers the MTU on links
leading to their servers to a random number between 1280 and 1500.
