While the engine will be a pseudo-"spec" part, the hybrid power unit
electrical system is where the FIA wants the competition as far as I know.
The hybrid system is still part of the power unit and FIA specifically says there will be lots of freedoms in the "socially relevant" electrical part of the power unit and that is where the FIA want the competition to lie.
So the FIA are only dictating the ICE, the legacy part, the "socially ir
relevant" part, not the entire power unit, not by any means.

If it sounds better than the current vacuum cleaner PU's, that'll at least be some improvement.
There's no MGUH (so less energy extracted from the exhaust) but there's also lower fuel flow rate (so there's less energy in the exhaust in the first place), so it is possibly much of a muchness. A pleasing engine sound is obviously not the goal of these regulations, which is fine, the FIA and the competitors have their priorities.
