I would not find that helpful.

I assume the people in each are would review their piece of the change.

As I explained below, since the code changes involve only copyright 
updates (in comments) and annotations (which don't affect the generated 
bytecode), there will no be functional change in the output based on 
this changeset.

Therefore, as long as a build succeeds, I don't see what difference 
client SQE testing would make in this particular case.
