reaction TBH is that it's a big mistake to be changing 3.9.x's ABI at this late date, and that if this ships it will be a blocker to ever again updating libtiff 3.9 in existing RHEL branches.
Can't it simply be turned off for these branches? Or left off by default so that distributions which want it have to enable it? The former is probably better as it ensures you won't have some distributions forget to enable it.
