This feature will be removed in the next release version, just like the reposition of the Start Menu.
Hopefully Classic / Open Shell will be stable by 2025 when It's time for a new computer.

One small issue I see with resizing the taskbar - the network / volume / date & time icons in the far right corner don't seem to resize. they seem to settle the bottom of the bar with the date nearly being cut in half.

Why would the remove useful features? MS should allow this just like Windows 10 in the settings menu.

It does not work any more. Also the option TaskbarSmallIcons to 1 is no longer working.
Why MS is so stubborn is a mystery....

There is no need to reboot to test the different taskbar sizes. Leave Regedit open. Then open the Task Manager and restart the Windows Explorer process after each change. The taskbar will reflect the change after each restart. All 3 taskbar settings can be viewed in less than a minute.
