I'm unsure whether it is a good idea, I like terse interfaces, but this is just an opinion.
I think the issue here is that the original case for this is a user accidentally getting into an \if and then having no clue what's going on. That's similar to what happens when you miss a quote or a semicolon. We handle those cases with %R, and I think %R needs to support if as well.
Perhaps there's value to providing more info (active branch, etc), but ISTM trying to do that will just confuse the original (%R) case.
