Sorry, we can't change this for three reasons.

First, it's a retroactive change to an older EAPI. We don't have the
authority to do that.

Second, the bash version decision was made by the Council, not us.

Third, changing it breaks sourcing done by older, Council-approved EAPI
compliant package managers. We can't do this, and we can't even do it
on an EAPI bump.

The solution here's to fix the tree.
