I agree that these are normal and in fact, you'll see them in 3.1.
Personally, I'd be a bit unnerved by the part of the line after the
word because it looks so odd. This part is new to 3-2-x.
Maybe this part should go up to -vvv and for -v we have some sort of
explanatory text as to why discarding the word is OK.
