I don't think this is a serious issue. If you have to implement mapping
at all, it is easy enough to support all mapping. It is not as if
it is hard to implement, after all.

mapping is extensible. if we add a third value to yes|no, the mapping
will still work. the selection mechanism will need to be rewritten.

its a fair argument
