Does liquid staking undermine weak subjectivity?

My understanding is that weak subjectivity requires that staked Eth have a withdrawal period. This allows for an objective canonical chain during this withdrawal period (because the staked funds are subject to at least partial slashing).

I suppose the Eth is still subject to a withdrawal period – even with liquid staking. So, perhaps there isn’t any change to weak subjectivity?

  1. The staked eth isn’t liquid, it’s still subject to the withdrawal period. The liquid derivative of that staked eth is just an IOU for the actual eth which is in the staking contract.
