There are better mechanisms available, and they have zero cost since
they've already been implemented.

Then ask the Council for permission to turn it on unconditionally.

Two major releases is almost certainly less than six months. Or, if

release that will come out no later than a week after EAPI 4 goes live,
and that the removal can go ahead three months after that.
