Perhaps this service provider can provide technical support?

My guess is priorities are elsewhere in the stack at the moment, and
we have very few deployments demanding this be fixed.

Certainly not.  I didn't think you or Ajay were end-users though.  My
advice to end-users would be to wait for the problem to be fixed, or
ask their deployment technical people to turn off the major feature
permanently, or build a fix.
