I was endorsing the whole sentiment, not exactly the topic it
belongs to. But even then, self-unblocking was a default option,
so it could’ve been discussed what must be done with it. Having
the ability to self-destruct on other people with the only option
available in blocking the bad guy himself is a valid concern to
have about this decision.

The approach to major changes (not talking about some design fix) should involve community and be entirely internationalYou *are* talking about some design fix. When blocking was added as a feature, it was only integrated with some actions - it was checked during editing, but not during unblocking. That was an oversight that has started causing problems now so it's being fixed.Even our largest wikis only see about ten self-unblocks a year, most of which are unblocks of self-blocks (which are not affected by the change). By no sane definition is this a major change. Had it not been announced here, no one would even have noticed it.
