In that case, if that is truly a worry, then the doc should say that.  As it is,
the doc is vague and incomplete.  It does not at all convey the interpretation
you are adding here.

Hey - pick any set of supported values and associated behaviors you like.  Have
them mean whatever you like.  But document what they do, completely and
unambiguously.  If non-nil other than `t' is to be unsupported or discouraged
for reasons of <whatever>, then say so.

Sheesh.  This really should be a no-brainer.
