New Portrait Impression Balance in the new firmware for the II twins?

I didn't check out the release notes very carefully but this summary from Thom has me intrigued about the new Portrait Impression Balance feature -

https://www.zsystemuser.com/nikon-z-system-news-and/firmware-updates-for-the-z6-2.html

It's described here - https://download.nikonimglib.com/archive4/r2CrJ00g8yMj05aFUME11CRUJ295/Z7IIZ6II_TG_Portrait_(En)01.pdf

What do you guys think? I like the additional customization, particularly the increase in brightness for my own uses, and I'm very curious about the M/Y in practical use.

From the use of a south-Asian model I guess that M/Y axis is more likely to be useful for more heavily-toned skin, but I've noticed even in my all-white-and-blonde-and-blue-eyed family my younger son and I have a yellower complexion versus my wife and older son with their pinker complexion.
