Isn't that backwards? As I read your reference manual excerpt, after
the fix in 5.1.6, you can set this option at any time, and it will be
set as expected. It's only with the older versions, where the option
handling had the bug, where we should check for a connection before
allowing the option to be set.
See the attached patch for my take on this.

As far as I know, this is the first change expressly made with 5.1 in
mind. Personally, the newest version I'm using is 5.0. I'm waiting for
some of this dust to clear before moving to a newer version. By all
means, continue to submit 5.1 related patches, though, if that's where
your itch is.
