Irrelevant, as long as the possibility exists, it's still a risk that not even the armour in your suggestion would be enough to prevent, causing needless frustration and unfairly lost items just for traveling even if you didn't start the fight. And while it is true players can use the Ender chest to protect their most important items like enchanted netherite gear, potions and shulker boxes, this new "Corundum armour" would have to be worn at all times, without any armour players are faced with another problem besides just the flying snakes in your idea, they'd be at a great risk of being killed by Endermen.
As for bedwars, that's a PVP server game that is entirely independent of vanilla Minecraft, it has no bearing on whether or not your suggestion is a valid one to introduce in an update.
And as allyourbasesaregone just told you, if someone spawns in the barrens or small islands by the time this gets implemented, wikis won't help the player as they would be stuck there, meaning if they are not wearing netherite armour by then, but are using iron which has absolutely no knockback resistance, they're out of luck. The reason why players would wear iron gear in End isn't hard to figure out, the risk of losing expensive equipment still exists, and seeing as Iron gear is still compatible with enchantments it offers enough protection to make it practical and it at least gives players a fair shot at dealing with Shulkers and Endermen, even Ender Dragon if you're careful. Iron is renewable thanks to trades and Iron golems, but netherite is not, there are valid explanations as to why even good players would choose this armour type in some circumstances.
Traversing the void with a properly aimed ender pearl is challenging enough, bottomless pits aren't bad game design in of themselves, but when they are combined with cheap and annoying mechanics that can send you plummeting into them through no fault of your own, that's when they do become bad design. Obviously if you don't aim an Ender Pearl properly and fall into the Void then that is on you if you die, but this is clearly different.
A normal person knows how to try not to be killed by the endermen, such as wearing a carved pumpkin and keeping his head down and not looking ahead. From your words, you want to be more novice-friendly, but the truth is that nothing is absolutely smooth, because many things do not necessarily follow the noob's way of thinking. Similarly, if you happen to come to the bastion remnant when you enter nether for the first time in a save, and you happen to encounter two piglin brutes, will you feel hopeless? At this time, how do you have a quick solution in an emergency?
As long as players with rich experience in bedwars and skywars know how to face not being shot into the void when the opponent has long-range weapons without ender pearls, building a pipeline bridge is an effective method.
Since you can come to the end in survival mode, you must have come to nether before. If you don’t hurry to mine ancient debris after you have been to nether, then you will fall into lava or void due to being chased by monsters is unlucky yourself. Really good players will give priority to how to take care of themselves, how to prevent themselves from dying so many times, and how to better ensure that the items they carry are not lost due to accidents. What's more, diamonds have become easier to obtain at 1.18, so even if you lose a set of diamond armor, it doesn't matter too much.
