Yeah, but do we even have the slightest bit of information about what
exactly would be required to achieve the required levels? And whether
this patch does it? And whether there would be alternative, more
desirable ways to achieve a similar level?

I am not arguing for or against this patch now, but I would like to know
whether someone has an agenda for it. Without an agenda, future
maintenance will be difficult. Reference to standards or other public
documents would work best to define that agenda.
