Quoting your own mail:

"If you believe the feature is necessary, introduce a NEW unambiguous  
instead of overloading.  E.g. "IncludeOptional /optional/include" for  
the include to fail."

As it turns out that the optional behaviour is the current default  
behaviour, and because you were not aware of this when you made your  
suggestion above, it is necessary for the option to become  
IncludeStrict instead of IncludeOptional.

Despite your veto being invalid for the reasons already stated, I have  
gone out of my way in good faith to implement your suggestion above  
and give end users the choice of behaviour you believe end users  
should have, in a form that can be backported to v2.2.
