"Enforceable" does not mean that it explodes into a breacher's face.  It
means that you can get a court to order compliance and award penalties
if it is not heeded.

That's what happening here.  If Westinghouse is planning to get out of
bankruptcy ever, they better not be amassing unnecessary legal debts.
So unless they already switched over to reckless mode, we'll likely get
to see compliance soon.
