What happens to Polygon zkEVM in the event of a deep block reorg on Ethereum?

In the event of a deep block reorganization on Ethereum, the state of the Polygon zkEVM would remain unaffected. Therefore, while Ethereum reorgs might impact the Ethereum network itself, they wouldn't directly impact the state or operation of the Polygon zkEVM. If there's a reorg in ethereum, would let the possibility to the sequencer to change the already sequenced batches. So, it's totally impractical due to the current Etheruem consensus, and also it should be triggered by the sequencer if it malicious.
