The homenet working group just published a RFC with a different solution.
The size hint is garbage today because every client will put garbage in it
and most servers will ignore it (including isc-dhcp IIRC). And likely it
will stay that way forever. The homenet solution is different, but it
reduces the need for a size hint.
