No. I actually broke my driver's one in a similar fashion a couple years ago. Fixed it the same way and it still works.

All of the load of lifting the handle to release the latch mechanism passes through a plastic arm about 1/4" square. Mine now passes through a piece of steel (a washer). It should be stronger the original.

The reference to non-load bearing is just at that one step where the broken arm is still unsupported.
