I've been riding the bike with the bent liver for quite a while I think, maybe a couple of years. I don't think that the bolt holding it on is going to be a problem. Also to the extent that the lever was injured due to falling over or hitting something, the annealing process actually fixes that injury in the sense that it realigns the molecules in the aluminum the way they were supposed to be at the outset. I definitely will be watching for a broken rear brake lever though and hope it doesn't happen

Well, if I were you, I'd still obtain a spare and toss it in your tool bag. I'm pretty sure that it is a sintered metal part and designed to be a breakaway to save the much more expensive pork chop...

When it does snap on you, it'll likely be at an inconvenient time and place. Besides, it's a cheap part.

Yes, definitely change that bolt - I had the one on the shifter side go (it's the same part) leaving the inexpensive steel remains in the rather expensive but thankfully available pork chop.
I think the bending of the lever must weaken the bolt and it is then just a question of time before it breaks off.
