This argument can be used to reject *ANY* new feature. For example, by
using your argument, we should have rejected the addition of IOCB_WAITQ
because it penalises the vast majority of IOs which do not use it.

But we didn't. Because we see that while it may not be of use to US
today, it's a generally useful feature for Linux to support. You say
yourself that this feature doesn't slow down your use case, so why are
you spending so much time and energy annoying the people who actually
want to use it?

Seriously. Stop arguing about something you actually don't care about.
You're just making Linux less fun to work on.
