I see your point.

However, I am hesitating doing that change, as it would be a waste for
the psci case, but I also think that it may becomes a bit less
straight forward to use this helper function.

Although, no strong opinions from my side either, but since Rob is
happy with this, there is no need to change it, I think.

Right.
