intend to make a similar change locally for immediate use. If not I'd

It's not that no one wanted to think about it, it's that the change is
not backward compatible so it requires careful consideration.

This is completely unsupported: a pattern-specific variable is _NOT_ a
pattern rule; you cannot substitute stems into the variable.
