One response would be that the names on LLVM instructions aren't
intended to be part of the "visible" behavior of the compiler.

Actually, I would prefer this was always a runtime option, but the
current design of the IRBuilder class is basing this off a template

But in practice, is this a bad idea? What are you concerned about? The
missing names triggering some different behavior in the backend which
results in a bug that only shows up in Release-Asserts mode?
