there's a whole stack of usecases like this, and it was deemed sufficiently
valuable and useful for RT=0 to have made it into RVV.

likewise RA=0 was deemed valuable and useful (see wiki.page with link to online
RVV setvl)

what they couldn't think of a use for is RA=0,RT=0 however in our case this can
be used to set MVL or VL.
