There's the extra complexity in implementation and tight coupling to isBuildVectorAllOnes as well (if that function was hypothetically enhanced to handle extra cases, this function would break).

I agree. We have a real use for at least one though, so we should add it. Otherwise these functions would never appear, no matter how useful they are, as everyone says "it's not worth it just for this one case".
