Thanks for a concise summary. Your use case fits exactly what
Felipe conjectured as the nonexistent minority.
An option that lets the caller say "I only care about marks on these
types of objects to be written to (and read from) the exported marks
file" would help Felipe's use case without harming your use case,
and would be a sane and safe way to go.
