That's my intention.

I definitely think this should be a minor mode -- even if it only 
remaps two commands:
  [remap kill-word]          => dynaword-kill-word
  [remap backward-kill-word] => dynaword-backward-kill-word

It can then be selectively turned on using mode hooks (or some modes
may turn it on unconditionally).

The fun thing about my "yank-function" functionality is that using
dynaword-kill-word can (silently) arrange for C-y to insert the killed
word(s) in a certain "non-trivial" way.

Let's see :-)
