Yes, that makes perfect sense.

Indeed. I'll try to find some time to work on that, but it may take a while.

I have signed a Form Assignment from the Free Software Foundation to
deal exactly with those matters for this patch to the libitm. Torvald
Riegel had advised me to do so.
I have not, however, received any further information; so I'm left
wondering if it went through or if it is still hanging. I will ping
back to FSF to check that out perhaps?
