No, that makes no sense at all to me. Why do you think this maps onto
the set mode API? Modes are all about accuracy of regulation.

I mapped this to the regulation under different load, Fast mode is
in heavy load and so boost enable, normal/idle mode for normal load
and so bypass.

This is still not making any sense. The quality of regulation and
output voltage are essentially orthogonal, and obviously there's a
specific API for bypass which is something different again to both
mode and output voltage selection.

Do you recommend adding API's (similar to bypass) for BOOST and SWITCH?
