I don't believe we can just rename an existing option to another one
just like that. First, I need to see a clear definition of
"coercion", "conversion" and a clear statement why -Wconversion should
disappear because of your project.

I suggest you leave it, give a clear definition of "coercion".
We will decide later whether it should be obselete or not. I'm
unwilling to kill it or put it in a dust before seeing anything
concrete about -Wcoercion.
