I don't follow this last part. I guess you're referring to the fact
that it won't grow back the PMTU if it is not encapsulating anymore.
If that's it, then changelog should be different here.  As is, it
seems it is not abiding by the RFC, but it is, as that's a 'SHOULD'.

Maybe s/requires\.$/recommends./ ?
