I'd rather not. They're supposed to be indistinguishable from the final.

I guess it'll be ok once the version number is fixed.

These things are always a "nice to have" though, and I struggle to see the
harm. :).

The harm is not that in particular, just the endless proliferation of compiler predefines and detritus. There are so many now that are of questionable virtue, but I can't yank them because somebody's build depends on it. I really want to raise the bar that any new ones need to pass.
