I didn't mean to imply that. What I recall is that you said you'd want it
to go in so that the release would have final support for ISA 3.0. And
iirc you made it explicit that this is the _final_ variant.

Well - renamed, removed, and added mnemonics don't sound all that
"small cleanup"-ish to me.

But anyway - mind clarifying if the removed mnemonics are expected
to re-appear in a later version of the ISA?
