The official reason given for this policy change:
  TeX/LaTeX unlike SGML is not Y2K compliant

Huh?

This must be the daftest reason imaginable.
You might like to point your correspondent at

which is probably as clear a statement you'll ever get from free
software, or perhaps they'd prefer to buy one of the commercial TeXS
that may give a stronger guarantee.
