 Related #53078.

 I was trying to recall the reason why I did not include this update in
 #53078, but it's not coming to mind. It may have been an oversight.
 WordPress no longer depends on this polyfill as of [50934].

 Based on the [https://github.com/github/fetch/releases release notes], it
 seems updating this should be straightforward and will bring the latest
 update of the library to anyone still utilizing it.

 Just a note for the contributor creating a patch for this: the version of
 the script needs to bumped in `wp-includes/script-loader.php` as well. The
 package is compiled into a script registered under the `wp-polyfill-fetch`
