Not at all. Doesn’t everybody like to leave their options open?

Maybe if you're a politician or a pundit.

The Church doesn't leave its "options open". It studies then it pronounces.

Two hundred years ago, there was no dogma of the Immaculate Conception nor Assumption. The Church was not "leaving its options open." These matters were being carefully studied. Then came a point when that process was complete and the dogmas were pronounced. For ever. No "options".

It will be the same with any new dogma, should it ever arise.
