  3.  An instrument that creates restrictions or obligations with respect to real property that would qualify as activity and use limitations except for the fact that the instrument was recorded before January 1, 2008, is not invalid or unenforceable because of any of the limitations on enforcement of interests described in subsection 2 of this section or because it was identified as an easement, servitude, deed restriction, or other interest.  Sections 260.1000 to 260.1039 shall not apply in any other respect to such an instrument.

  4.  Sections 260.1000 to 260.1039 shall not invalidate or render unenforceable any interest, whether designated as an environmental covenant or other interest, that is otherwise enforceable under the laws of this state.
