Sounds good enough to me. Essentially, it gives users a way to work around
incorrect buffer implementations at their own risk (although there may not
be all that many complex buffer providers out there that would expose such
a problem...).

We should document the obvious drawbacks, though, i.e. no validation, all
crashes you get are entirely your own.
