The point of this is that automatically updating the config.guess and
config.sub scripts is considered a good thing.

It may be considered a good thing to some, but it is not necessarily a good thing. Consider that the rest of the build package (e.g. libtool) is expecting particular host identifications and that sometimes the behavior of these scripts change. Also, consider that the versions available for a given platform may actually be older than the ones that come in the package.

You are breaking a matched/tested set of tools.
