I don't think the stepped regulator design was done to protect the battery, I think it was to protect the charging system.
If the earthX is discharged a lot, it will try and pull all the amps that the charge system can supply. A 912ULS doesn't have a lot of reserve available so the ramp up keeps the battery from overwhelming the charging system right after start-up.
