In this particular instance I would offer the opposite advice :).
Remove the "gamma-correction" toggle / "srgb" boolean, and create a
separate "gegl:over-perceptual" or "gegl:over-gamma" operation.

I consider what was done in GIMP with such sRGB booleans a hack; that
accidentally spread to the GEGL code base. From a GEGL
color-management perspective; over in linear light space; and over in
perceptual light space are two different (compositing) operations; and
from the perspective of applications using GEGL - it is easier to deal
with property/parameter-free compositors/layer-modes.
