Well, that's really for interface or behaviour changes.

I think it is clear that the library should come with those QC
properties. The issue at stake is if they should be run every time as
part of GHC's testing process.

So I'd suggest applying the patch and then disabling the automatic
running of the tests until that issue is decided. It'd be a bit sad to
let good test code languish just because we can't decide if it should be
run regularly or not.
