I've reached two conclusions:

1. This is a design issue.

2. I don't want to do what is being requested.  That is, I agree with Lucas about the future potential for profiling to address any need of this sort.  I hadn't considered the impact of this sort of change on h3, but it would negatively affect performance.  So let's not.

So the proposal I would make is to close this with no action.
