I agree completely, and hope that just doing (1) correctly will be
enough.  But if (1) is not enough, then I think we should fix the rest
of the use cases via a user option that redirects yes-or-no-p to
y-or-n-p.  Requesting us to drag on with supporting such defaliases is
an unjustified maintenance burden.
