This is at this point a dishonest argument of yours.

Users *will* know what to expect, in fact, it will be *easier* for
them to know that because the declaration will be right there in front
of their eyes.

I can see no plausible reason for rejecting this strategy except that
you want exactly what you want, with no room for disagreement or
alteration at all.
