I like this suggestion.

First prize: keep sinh, cosh, tanh in loaded math.
Second prize: keep sinh, cosh, tanh in loadable math.
Third prize: keep sinh, cosh, tanh in Lua source code
   such that they can be activated by as simple a code
   change as the above.

Note that the work3 situation still looks like the first prize
but actually is third prize with that simple code change
being enabled by default.
