Premature flexibility is one of the roots of all evil. :)
Seriously, your code has two types of users. Yes, you should make writing
features easier for biz, but you should also make reading steps easier for
dev. Given that, I like the suggestion of explicitly enumerating the choices
of verbiage. A clear pointer toward that choice is the comment. A comment is
an apology for unclear code. All unclear code should be commented, but
unclear code should be avoided whenever possible.
All IMO, of course.
