The proposal describes the upgrade as an account abstraction which completely avoids consensus-layer protocol changes instead of relying on higher-layer infrastructure. Account abstraction essentially allows ETH wallets to operate as programmable smart contracts. This would enable users to recover lost private keys, among other benefits.
