Clearly you would, but #428189 (moving coreutils printf to /bin) was
also implicitly rejected by the TC in its decision on #539158. The
question of whether to move printf to /bin was raised in that
conversation, and rejected:

So I think #428189 ought to be closed.
If you disagree about the meaning of the TC decision in #539158 then
the TC should clarify it.
