Sure, but that's just another way of phrasing "speedrun mode", not a way to make that less work to implement :P

The thing is that this would require JJ2+ to offer two versions for a variety of physics subroutines, the buggy vanilla version and the better plus version. That's obviously more work to maintain, and it feels silly re-implementing buggy behaviour that has already been patched out, usually for good reason. In some cases the old behaviour may be relatively easy to get back, if it's still in the code somewhere and relatively isolated, but that won't be the case for all physics patches.

It's not necessarily difficult, it's just a fair bit of work. Maybe it will happen! There's an issue for it in the JJ2+ issue tracker already, in fact. But the cost/benefit analysis for this one, for this particular reason, isn't very favourable.
