Note, I'm not saying this is not a fault on the board - it is - just that the effect of this fault is miniscule compared to the market.
let's stay on the same frequency here. As you say this is a fault and I will not buy a faulty board for whatever reason when a fixed one is coming , even if the effect is minor.
I would put money on almost every electronics board out there having some sort of defect that gets fixed over time. Do you have the same rules about software? Because I can guarantee that every single software package you are using has faults in it. However, you never see them. Or at least, usually never see them!
Put another way, does this problem affect you? If not then you will see no difference whatsoever between the current board and any future board with the USB-C power fix. This is simply the way of the world. We are not unique. Every had a car recall? Proof if it were needed that even safety critical systems (my Honda had a recall at 8 years old to do with the airbags) can have faults when they are first released. This USB power issue affects almost no-one in comparison.
