I think trying to keep the number of rules that require context to a
minimum is a good idea. As pointed out in the BIP, using only the
timestamp of the block means that the block limit can be determined purely
from the block header.
I don't think there is much issue with having a 1MB block following an 8MB
block during the activation.
This is inherent in using the timestamps. It occurs for every block that
has a timestamp lower than its parent, but to a lesser degree.
When fees are the main source of income, it does create a slight incentive
to use higher timestamps, but that is probably not massive, since it is 2
hours out of the 2 year doubling time.
