I think we could advocate adding the IL property to the sgf specification.
It seems to me to serve a useful purpose.

If a file is loaded with a ko position marked with the IL property
GNU Go will avoid playing it. We should be able to create files
with the IL property marked so --printsgf should continue to
generate it.
