You are going over what I already considered.  This is a special case.

If I turned it off in 9 no one would see/report any issues so we would 
not learn anything.
It'll be resolved by feature freeze or some milestone like RDP1 .. but 
what to do in 9 is TBD.
That doesn't mean we should wait as 8ux has to be resolved.

I deliberately opened up an 8u40 backport so the issue will still be on 
the 9 radar
as that will remain open and there are the other bug reports too.
