No, I am not asking to add nonexistent features. I am asking to be consistent when we remove something. Those 3 patches only make sense if we officially enforce that crop&A/R changes cannot be rejected. Otherwise, committing changes before they are accepted is bad and confusing design at the very least.

I am actually in favor of the simplification, as I am not aware of any problems with it.
