The last two rules that have been introduced - hi viz in the event of a breakdown and wearing gloves seem quite sensible to me.
If you're looking to have a stress free trip to France just make sure you have your papers (log book and insurance for the bike and passport for you), wear gloves, carry your hi-viz, so that in the extremely unlikely event that you're stop by the Gendarmes you'll be fine. Not too much to ask in my view.
I get stopped often on trail bikes but I do about 10k road miles a year all over France and have never been stopped.
