Just to clarify, when folks talk about 9k MTUs, they gnerally mean
8940 bytes. That is, twice the MTU for FDDI and DS3. It seems to me
that if the MTU is going to be increased at some point that working in
multiples is the right way to go about it.

I think this would be extremely foolhardy. The common number that all
those using jumbo frames should support is 9000 bytes (not 9k aka 9216).
