I think it's OK to leave the above section, as it doesn't speak to
enforcement, but rather is just a set of reporting instructions,
with an assurance of confidentiality. This seems to me not to be
the objectionable part of this section.
(IOW, I would omit this removal from the patch).

If the next part is indeed removed, then maybe the section
needs to be renamed?
