Sure, except that in this case the two functionalities are not so
superficially similar as to be likely to cause confusion. What goes
on in a switch of either kind could reasonably be called a
"relocation", whereas what goes on in a normal update cannot by any
stretch of the imagination be called an "exclusion". Clear words make
clear heads.
