It may be that the new chemistry cannot live without it. Which would unfortunately may a step away from the very stable (in terms of thermal runaway) gen1 LEAF chemistry.
I think they will need it for 100K useful charging. At least where you can find it to be useful and reasonable.
Or adjust the charging taper as a function of battery & ambient temperatures, and possibly the thermal time constant of the battery.
Leaf SL MY 9/13: 66K miles, 50 Ahrs, 5.2 miles/kWh (average), Hx=70, SOH=78, L2 charges to 100% > 1000, max battery temp < 95F (35C), min discharge point > 20 Ahrs
