Well, the standard doesn't specify it, but that doesn't mean that it does forbid it! If you add a mechanism which uses a mangled name, doesn't require additional template parameters for its implementation, etc, and you document it, everything is perfectly fine. I think that, if only for our internal use (eg, in the testsuite!) it would be quite convenient to have a mechanism which forces the switch, to wit bypasses the automatic switch having to do with brs. And even if at this time it may not make much sense for the users to choose (because one is certainly much faster and only the other correctly handles brs) that may not be so obvious if you add a third.
