If there's no functional regression on any platform, could much of this
wait until v5.14, or do we want some of these cleanups right now?

The fixes seem to be for long-existing bugs, not fresh regressions, AFAICS.
The asserts & cleanups are useful, but not regression fixes.

I.e. this is a bit scary:
