Whatever happened to "Do exactly as CML1 does; leave fixes and extensions

standard kernel.

It isn't "optional", it is builtin. It doesn't matter if somebody uses it
or nobody does, it will be there. And AFAIU what you have said, you are
modifiying CML2 (or at least the rulebase) for the sake of it. This is
_not_ what had been agreed on the matter.
