The above proposal seems fine to me as a longer-term direction, but
also seems somewhat orthogonal to the issue my patch is trying to
solve in the short term, namely inconsistent documentation and
behavior:

1) "optimized", "missed", "note" and "optall" are documented as being
sub-options for -fdump-tree-* in doc/invoke.texi, but not implemented.
2) "optimized", "missed", "note" and "optall" are however enabled via
-fdump-tree-all

Could we at least fix these issues in the short term, as it doesn't
affect the documented behavior (but rather adds the documented
behavior)?

Thanks,
Teresa
