As shown here, the cables mentioned by @danj cannot be swapped out. I have pried open the clutch cover which is glued to the LCD bottom panel to investigate.

These are the components, labelled, with clear explanations of what they do and how they are connected.
 
This should answer anyone's queries about whether the LCD cable can be changed. The part that can be changed is not the answer. The parts that might be the failing ones, cannot be changed.
 
Conclusion:
 
1. Apple needs to initiate a recall.
 
2. '''LCD display change is the only solution for now.'''
