Wouldn't those situations be causing issues now, given the likelihood that someone with a less than 1,500 byte MTU is communicating with you now?

Mismatch of MTU interface settings between interfaces, mismatch of MTU
between L3 devices and intermediate L2 devices, anycast services, ECMP
based services where the ICMP error is delivered to the wrong node.
So yes, there are plenty reasons that PMTUD doesn't work without anyone
doing it because of ill will or incompetence.
