Perhaps I didn't make myself clear.  The change I pointed at was
accepted to the interpretations track which means that if we would
create a Technical Corrigendum 3 for the 2001 standard (which we are
not) the relaxation for the error values would be added.  The current
situation is just as good, it's just as binding.  There is no need to
reissue the standard to make such changes.

So, put this issue to rest.  There is not issue.  The whole premise
for the original post is wrong these days.  There is no compliance
problem.
