That was what I meant. "we" here = the guys who are arguing.

Well, I'll go along with the tide as far as I can, but the more I 
think about this, the better the 'allow redundancy but deprecate it' 
solution seems to be. I think we are on track to do a premature 
optimization thingie here which will quite soon turn out to have been 
just the kind of mistake we ought to have learned not to make. But 
I'm not going to lie down in the road about it, to use a phrase I 
recently learned from Bijan.
