Could you run “make guix-tarball.x86_64-linux.tar.xz” before and after,
and report the size difference?

No, because it’s not an update of a core package (“core” in the sense
that everything depends on it.)

It would be nice to add a margin comment saying that this is for ‘guix

I’d like to check the tarball size before making the decision.  It’s
probably fine to increase it somewhat, since it’s a useful addition, but
not too much.
