What's the case where this patch is needed? It checks against is_new_game, which would indicate that any game saved in pregame would be affected. I saved in pregame, and loaded without this patch, and everything seemed to work.
It seems that while the funcions this patch protects from being called when is_new_game are themselves checking against it already.

No objection from me -- I was thinking along the same lines.

It occurred to me that someone may consider this a scenario format change (new kinds of scenarios allowed) and thus not something we should do after datafile format freeze. I myself consider this a bugfix fixing kinds of scenarios that were supposed to be working already. Any objections?
