Usually, yes.

I'm guessing this is due to downstream implementations wanting to pick
up the current release as base target (which can be done regardless,

In theory we can hide flang by having to explicitly name it on the
build command, so merging now or later won't make massive practical

I personally don't like rushing things like that, but I'm not strongly
opposed to either, if everyone else is on board with the rush.
