The feedback is that: you can use any cap, including tantalum. :)

No more feedback is really needed. Everyone who performed the rework
confirmed that it eliminates the buzz. No single negative report. And
i guess at least 10-20 people have already tried the rework. So, the
reason that no reseller is doing it yet is probably due to
communication/business issues rather than technical.
