This seems like a non-obvious user-breakage. So apart from removing the
in-kernel stuff that uses bidirectional commands you also forbid
userspace from every using them? That seems wrong to me.

There is other SCSI Command Sets than OSD that provide bidirectional
commands, even SBC has some (i.e. X*WRITE*, COMPARE AND WRITE).
