If you read the original email again, it was not even the goal to address this.

But all specific things like latency and the specified reduction in power
consumption are going to be MD-specific implementation details. An MI
implementation should be designed so that it will work also when these are
missing. A basic design principle.

In order to be able to proceed incrementally, you need to start somewhere.
