I don't think we have any plan for the optimization *level* (1, 2, and 3), at least not that I know of. I don't even see how it would be possible to achieve it in a principled way without limiting what we're allowing ourself to express at the PassManager level with these levels.
We can handle O0 (optnone), Os (optsize), and Oz (minsize) separately though, because we can make these independent of the passmanager setup.
