Absolutely.  The BSM might have an API-specific fallback.

I'm also thinking that we could add a query for the original symbolic reference,
which the BSM could look and and perhaps resolve "by hand".
This is similar in spirit to the original "invokedynamic" proposals
as a form of "messageNotUnderstood".
