Hrm.  This is actually specifically discouraged by the documentation.
However reading the POSIX standard shows that make is required to accept

The problem is that the new flags we're adding are causing some pain; I
may need to tweak the algorithm that generates the MAKEFLAGS values.

I'll take another look at this.
