Given the recent articles/preprints by Google and Quantinuum claiming implementation of braiding of non-Abelian anyons on a quantum processor, what is the likely impact of these findings, and specifically on the feasibility of topological quantum computing as a more quick route to fault-tolerant QC?

To be more specific, along the lines of the question here, do these recent results from Google and Quantinuum weaken any of the $11$ objections in this answer over at MathOverFlow, On mathematical arguments against Quantum computing, particularly Gil Kalai's about decoherence always outpacing the fault-tolerance threshold?
