I don't have a position to fight for on bonding. Mine are not bonded (nearly 30 of them!! holy moly)
The question I have is over the standard. Logically, it makes sense to bond a thru hull that may be composed of dissimilar metals. However, are there valves that are solely one metal? If so, what would you be protecting, rather aren't you introducing dissimilar metals by bonding? Finally, from a practical standpoint, I've seen electrically corroded thru hulls, but not very often. Is this standard a logical one, with less practical impact than most?
