    I doubt anyone disagrees with that.  Just how is it relevant here?

You are askig for certain procedures to be followed rigidly.  We use
those procedures to smooth out the problems caused by removing a feature
that people really use.
If it looks like Info-edit is rarely or never used, we don't need to
follow them rigidly for Info-edit.

We are not manufacturing medicines here.  Even if we make an error, the worst
that happens is inconvenience.  A small chance of a small inconvenience
is not significant.
