Hi Alan!

I'm not sure why it would be an improvement to make it a method.
As Roger said, with a final variable, the compiler is able to eliminate 
dead code altogether.

I think, if later there's a need to make the decision 
dynamic/overridable, it can be easily changed, as it's not part of 
public API.

Sincerely yours,
