My feeling is that ‘extra cost’ amenities, at least at this stage, should be based on class of service, not status. For the most part people haven't been earning status through revenue to the airline.
perception wise with jobkeeper and other various airline subsidies, should money be propping up the cheapest tickets with expensive food and beverages... in some cases perhaps costing close to the price of the base fare itself? Business class tickets include those amenities in the fare.
Considering you can't fly F I can't see how that would work. Usually I would support paid F getting something extra vs WP/P1, but to suggest paid J get more than WP/P1 - nooope! Besides, if you incentivise status you encourage more frequent travel and higher fare classes - if you just incentivise class of travel, that only works that one time.
