Comment (by jrf):

 @antonvlasenko Couple of points here:

 1. The changes you are suggesting are for an external dependency. That
 dependency has already released a version compatible with PHP 8.1 (and 8.2
 for that matter). WP just hasn't upgraded yet. See:
 2. The only reason the Importer plugin has a PHPUnit restriction is
 because it is needed to support older WP versions. With the WP 5.9 or
 higher, all necessary PHPUnit versions are supported. You should NOT run
 with `--ignore-platform-reqs`. Instead you should run `composer remove
 --dev phpunit/phpunit` (this will not actually remove phpunit, but will
 remove the version restriction). See: https://github.com/WordPress
 for the full details and explanation.

 I suggest closing this ticket as a duplicate of #54504.
