My previous commit restored behavior to mount(8) that
was undocumented, but people and startup scripts depended on that behavior.

Your suggestion implements new behavior for mount(8).
I don't have the time or interest to implement your suggestion

If you want to flip ro status, then use the existing behavior of mount(8):

mount -u
mount -u -w
mount -u -r

to do it, or implement the behavior you want yourself in mount(8).
