This uses a lot of codepoints #11

If you subscribe to the theory that DTLS has to mux with the realtime protocols, this takes a good slice of the remaining codepoints space. Though TLS has between 20 and 63, DTLS 1.3 takes 32-63 and the registration of 4 more would leave just 3: 29, 30, and 31.

I submit that we might be better considering the TLS 1.3 record construction with a single codepoint. That would get us content type encryption and arbitrary padding as a secondary benefit. All for the modest cost of one octet.

If DTLS 1.3 used a demux prefix scheme like the one proposed here, this should be no longer an issue.
