Not sure I agree that using this is a good idea in the first place.

But if we end up using this, I really think the docs should be very
explicit about what's implemented and not just say master/any. With
the master/any docs in the patch I would be *very* surprised if a
master is skipped only because it was configured with
default_transaction_read_only = on.
