ribua hatefiros

Someone wrote that there's no need to be machmir by ribua hatefiros, particularly Sephardim and this doesn't require any tikun and can be worn with a bracha as is. So he's claiming that there's no need for the corners to be 90 degrees/square. This is news to me. I've no doubt that Rav Friedlander would have paseled this.
Someone else suggested fixing it without opening the bayis even though it's sealed with glue. On top of the issue with correcting the ribua once sealed, if one would fix without opening it, the hole needs to be extended and the charitz widened without tearing the gid and that would leave a considerable gap between the corner tefiros. If opened, the hole can be widened then the original side filled.

Spit damage on sefer torah. How would this be fixed? The answer may be simpler than you think. Feel free to post your thoughts...
