surprising number of targets don't define any special attributes at all).

It might be acceptable for Stage 3 if the subsequent follow-on patches
demonstrated a noticable performance improvement. It should be a branch
until you can demonstrate that improvement. The final decision on
acceptability will probably hinge on how mechanical the patch is: even
if large, if it is quite mechanical (as I would anticipate), that will
make it less worrisome.
