Right.  There are some rules that are so unimportant that I don't even
want to see the conflict.  When I see a conflict I have to at least look
at it and see if I want to do something about it (watch it live, etc.)
Seeing a conflict on these rules is just a nuisance.

The flag wouldn't be the default of course.  If they will ever care that it is
not recorded they wouldn't set the flag.

Unless someone knows some other way to accomplish this I'll just
go ahead and implement it and see how it works for me.
