You *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.
