The scripts/mysql_system_tables_fix_for_downgrade.sql does not cover all of the edge cases and versions of the server binaries and their corresponding system table layouts.

How to repeat:
run against different server versions and observe deficiencies. 

Suggested fix:
Remove the script from the server distribution.

higher, was removed from the MySQL installation directory. The script was
no longer valid for all downgrade paths. For more information, see <xref

The following documentation was also revised:
