Yes, this would be the proposal.

I suggested in a separate email that the byte compiler could warn
when binding C-i or C-[ directly (as opposed to binding TAB or ESC).
In my mind, that should be sufficiently discouraging for package
authors while also allowing users to do this if they wish to do so.
Would that sound more appealing to you?

I'm not familiar with the byte compiler though, so I don't know how
hard this is to do in practice.
