Should we backport this to 4.7.2? Or is it too big a change...? (E.g. we'd need matchVersion to distinguish 4.7.0,1 vs 4.7.2).
-1 We should really not change the behaviour of analysis components in minor releases. And we should not add new constants. So sorry, no chance to get this into 4.7!
I think we should simply get 4.8 out soon! I would be the RM, so I will send a request to the ML.
