Wouldn't it make more sense to unshallow the submodule clone in this case and checkout the configured commit 2aa4cce7d7fd46164030f2b4d244c4b89e77f722 afterwards?

If I remember correctly the conclusion of the discussion at the time
was that people are more interested in "less data" rather than
"correct data" because otherwise you would not have asked for shallow.

I do believe this is an awkward choice. What does it help to get less data if it's the wrong data?
