I’d be happy to require both final and override if there was any benefit to doing so.

I read it fairly carefully, and I don’t think it says anything meaningful for us. Maybe we can find a real example in WebKit code where there’s a “final” and if we added “override”, it would have caught a mistake that “final” won’t catch?
