Right. I haven't heard any requests for such a thing either, and I am not
advocating for it. That said, I tend to prefer a design which does not
actively impair a move in that direction, but only so long as it has a
near zero impact on the core code. I believe that to be the case here.

It's all about the wiggle room,
