After following out the links in your post I eventually found one link
where the rubber meets the road with an RQCC report:
It's a bit confusing, since the Target Version shown there is 7, but it
was submitted just a few months ago, many years after v7 was EOL'd.
Did you try to tip Heather included in Comment 5 there?
As hodge podge of what appear to be very different optimization
opportunities under the hood, it may be difficult for the team to take
action on it/them, and impossible to track.
For example, we know from Mark Waddingham's recent post on array
optimizations that at least some of the many very different tests there
will be affected, and likely not others.
Also, textreplace relies on the regex subsystem, which I'd guess is
independent of the chunk handling code for items, which is different
again from the allocation options for appends (I thought append had some
revisions since v7, no?), and likely separate from the math operations.
If I can't even follow the progress on that report, I pity the dev
assigned to deal with it.
In fact, now that I see it again I recall that the
everything-in-one-report nature of that is why I subscribe to it when it
was created in September.
Imagine if we put all bugs from the RQCC into one report. That seems
absurd of course, but this is unfortunately just a smaller version of
the same problem imposed by such a grab-bag approach.
Maybe someone on the team has the resources to break it up into
actionable elements. Maybe you do. I don't right now.
It's too bad that report's recipes have been packaged in such an unusual
format uniquely difficult to integrate and track within the QA process.
Looks like some useful details there, currently lost in a black box.

Yes, good link. It's been a hectic season but lightening up. It would
be good to catch up.
