"make FS layer consistently not version no-ops" stands in opposition to
the historical intent for the FS layer. The other two options are fine
with me, though I confess that at this stage of the game, trying to
retroactively consistify the FS layer's behavior without a driving
use-case beyond mere developer OCD seems like a waste of time of
energy. That said, it's neither my time nor energy at risk, so weigh my
input accordingly.
