Sure.  Feel free to make that argument, but:

  (1) Until you've won everybody over, please use the normal default
      syntax (at least when you're changing core functionality; I'd
      prefer _everywhere_, but it's too exhausting to argue about
      cork-puller-mode or whatever).

  (2) Surely it's an after-the-release sort of thing...?

"Though they may have different meanings, the cries of 'Yeeeee-haw!' and
 'Allahu akbar!' are, in spirit, not actually all that different."
