Keep in mind, that the timedated script is not the only affected script, there is at least src:fence-agents as well and there might be other packages affected as well as local scripts which expect /bin/sh to behave POSIX compliant in that regard. If this change in behaviour is kept, I would at least expect a big fat NEWS entry in the Debian dash package which is shown on upgrades and it should probably also update the package description which currently still says that it is a POSIX-compliant shell.
