>> - If a case statement on an ordinal does not contain labels for all values of

> So now I will have to add a useless else statement for every case
> statement that uses e.g. integers, or rewrite them to if..then..else

> And how will I mage this when my code runs on different architecture

> Please no (to this part of the proposal).

+1 here or at least decrease severity from warning to some level that is
