I keep finding myself guessing whether weird wrinkles are due to this
hack or are actual wrinkles which I should complain about.

Please make the change to the final form ASAP, otherwise the review
effort is going onto the wrong thing.

Until this series is committed there is no need for any backwards compat
with intermediate forms of the series. We won't commit to it until it is
complete and non-RFC, so no need to worry about creating a halfway
converted stream now.
