If those two modes only differ in software complexity but we are not
able to support only the simpler one and we have support for the more
complicated (standard mode) anyways, we know that standard mode
can handle or the cases while dynamic mode cannot, we also know that
dynamic mode is broken on some versions of the core, why do we actually
keep support for dynamic mode?
