To those who seek to block ICMP, I say: "Let them."  I'm sure that a

What if I just don't set DF on my outgoing traffic, and block incoming
ICMP?

Then folks that use tunnels will not be able to exchange packets
with you.  A lot more people are using tunnels these days.  Like
PPPoE, OpenVPN, etc.

Also a lot of ISPs still force 576 MTU on dial-ups.  These folks also
will not be reachable.

I use OpenVPN and occasionally can not reach web servers set up as
you suggest.
