This. Standardize your core to somewhere well above 9k, so you can
potentially offer customers 9k and still transport all overhead you need.

Typically 9178 Cisco IOS and 9192 Juniper JunOS. But it's not really a big
problem if physical MTU does not match, if you have reason to avoid that,
just make sure IP MTU (CLNS MTU, ipv6 MTU etc) match instead.
