That is incorrect: the change was made to fix annoying
(a.k.a. "buggy") behavior, whereby some async message displayed while
y-or-n-p was prompting the user would completely hide the prompt, and
Emacs would be left in a state where it expects the user to type
something, but doesn't say so.

It depends on the rules.  The rules proposed until now will definitely
cause us to do worse, which is unjustified given how rare these cases
