It doesn't make this work though.

With your skeleton patch, br0 updates MTU, but the sender still
won't know that unless input traffic to br0 is routed (or locally
generated).

Furthermore, such MTU reduction would require a mechanism to
auto-reconfig every device in the same linklevel broadcast domain,
and I am not aware of any such mechanism.
