You're not convincing many so far.

The fact is, it is very marginal, there is no light leak to sensors, and it's easily avoided for anyone doing long exposure photography who would (a) almost certainly not rely solely on automatic metering, (b) would easily be able to turn off LCD backlight for long exposure, and (c) would almost certainly be committed to more than one exposure, later ones adjusted based on the results of the first.

With ANY camera, a sensible long-exposure photographer would shield the body from as much extraneous light as possible.

Even when I try to meter total blackness at the highest ISO I get a difference of about a third of a stop.

Show us ONE picture, with EXIF, ruined by this issue (and I mean, an image NOT an LCD screen). Then we might be more inclined to understand the need for drama queenery here.

You nicely developed my statement 2 and you are in perfect agreement with it.

There is no drama present in any of my 5 statements.

Unfortunatelly I could not find "queenery" in any on my dictionaries.
