Right, it won't do any harm, it will just be another additional bit of
pain thrown on the pile of other bits of pain for people who continue to
use v4.  It can be worked around which is why I don't outright oppose
it, it isn't going to do any harm.  And I can't think of a better way
off the top of my head short of using Class E, which would be the
"right" way to do this, in my opinion, but has its own sets of issues.
