Maybe "isn't supported" is not really the right wording. I would think that
if it truly weren't supported that you really shouldn't be changing the
mode at all at runtime. Do you really just mean "isn't atomic"? Or is there
something deeper about it? If so, are there other possible risks associated
with changing the mode at runtime?

Sorry, the wording just happened to catch my eye and my mind immediately
went to "how can you be doing something that is not supported?"
