I did pick -U because it wasn't used by elfutils or binutils readelf.
--unprocessed-values also starts with an 'u'. But might be a little too
generic indeed. What it really does is not resolve any offset values in
DWARF .debug sections to addresses, but just print the value
unresolved/unprocessed. So how about -U, --unresolved-offsets. Or maybe
-O, --offset-values? -O is also not used by either readelf or eu-readelf
