It does rather rely on a gentleman’s agreement between Ferrari and the FIA. Ferrari say “we only use this little bit of ES for the MGU-H, because we only use it to deal with turbo lag, like you intended.” And the FIA say “OK”.
It does feel a little on the edge of legality to approve a scheme on the basis that it is of little importance, only to open the flood gates later on. Mind you, it wouldn't be the first time. But, yes, I think it's reasonable to assume an agreement is needed covering the design of the Control Electronics, the partitioning of the Energy Store and the positioning of the ES sensor
Personally, I prefer the energy transfer methods using the MGU-H, as it doesn't require that extra fudge factor, although, the electronics offers a more efficient scheme
