I agree that 2021b should be released without the disputed changes.

To avoid repo-churn on main, I would suggest releasing 2021b from a 
branch made before the disputed changes in May, with the recent 
non-controversial changes cherry-picked from main.  An appropriate NEWS 
entry can be added on main to explain.
