The fact is that AEP path is not actual right now.

I'm not even interested to go further on discussing about feature that
does not exist. Perhaps if/when it exist it turns out that we want a
variable lets say 'exit_reason' to present something in that context.

I'm neither against that or for it because it is all speculative.

I rather pick the word redundant:

1. 'leaf' exist anyway.
2. It can represent all the state we need right now.
3. It does not block anything.,

I care deeply about wasting 4 bytes in a fixed size struct for
absolutely nothing.
