Exactly how does this change make the situation better in practice? In other
words, what particular use cases is it supposed to fix?

I see it as an abstract change that alters the behavior of many different
calling sites. Given that the practical benefits are unknown, I think that
we should restore the known stable behavior, and avoid problems coming
from various places.
