As a nit, I would take out "have a preference to".

>From what I can tell, there are developers who think this position makes
little sense and, perhaps, risks diluting the value of EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL()

this change as documentation of clear existing practice; whether that
practice should change is, I think, a separate discussion.
