You should never do this. You should use the default buffer sizes and
as a result the kernel's TCP stack automatically adjusts the send and
receive buffers in response to the link characteristics.

When you set explicit buffer sizes, this turns off the TCP stack's
auto-tuning mechanism.

Every argument made in support of your proposed feature is based upon
a false premise of one kind of another, and this is yet another example
of this.
