Enforcing Data Types for system attributes (2.22)

Hi - in some of the implementations that I work, we use system attributes across Programs, Data Elements, Org Units, etc. Enforcing the data type of a system attribute has been present in DHIS from went I started working in DHIS - 2.10, I think. During the revamp of the DataElement manager app, those checks disappeared (2.22), but apparently got re-implemented for 2.23. (see comparison below)

Is it possible to back-port this to 2.22? I cannot upgrade to 2.23, and no having the data type checks is a big lost of functionality for some of the setups that we have. We will really appreciate if this can be back-ported to 2.22.

Thanks !

2.20 – (and since 2.??)
