But this transformation is a performance loss if the expression can be
proved true by the compiler or if one of the two bound checks
can be omitted due to compiler knowledge. Hence a flag
for those who know the standard to suppress this transformation.
(I'm assuming X'Valid means no optimization at all as expected
by the standard).
