I'm not a fan of doing that. Doing that for every option tends to be
more annoying than helpful. E.g. pgbench's checks requires you to
pointlessly remove a lot of harmless options just to be able to pass -i.

It doesn't make sense to specify it with --create-slot though - you
can't even know what a the start position would mean before the slot is
created. You can't get older records than the ones at slot creation
time, and you can't know what a feature xlog position would mean.
