I was working on something similar:
I was trying to do too many things at once (enum reference types, etc),
and I was inferring "mask" status from the presence of "bit" in the
enum. I think I prefer the explicit "mask" vs "enum", though.

I'll probably start working on extensions if nobody else beats me to it.
