As you're effectively saying you've abandoned the product, might not
the best course of action be for you to ask MS to add that its Patch
Tuesday third-party killbit list so it is done for those who don't now
better? That is, those who need the most help?

That's what I'd consider the reasonable thing to do, _particularly_ for
a security product developer. Hopefully MS can get it into the next
patch kit (probably unlikely now?) before someone takes the published
PoC and adds it to one or more of the various web exploitation kits out
there...
