I expected portage to do an downgrade.

Today I was CC'ed to https://bugs.gentoo.org/105016 because package.mask

In the meantime another bug was filed about portage doesn't attempt to
downgrade packages on keyword changes... https://bugs.gentoo.org/252167
with a fix.
I am confused. Will portage warn about the downgrade now and forever?
Yes, my intention is for the masks to be unnecessary, because after
thinking about it I decided that it's not desirable to maintain
package.mask entries for packages such as these. Since bug 252167
has been fixed, newer versions of portage perform automatic
downgrades like older versions of portage did.
