You cannot change the MTU of the tunnel, but you can change the "ip mtu"
of the tunnel. I've done this on 7200 and 1600 that are running IOSes that
are at least a year old. The feature is at least 2-3 years old, because
that's the first time I encountered it.
The router will do re-assembly on the tunnel level to be able to transfer
a 1500 byte sized IP packet non-fragmented.
