OK, I agree that the symmetry is good in general and it certainly makes
sense here as well. But does it make sense to pick up this particular
part without larger considerations of add vs. remove apis? I have a
strong feeling this wouldn't be the only thing to care about. In other
words does this help future changes or it is more likely to cause more
code conflicts with other features being developed right now?
