In this mode you would either pool for file changes or just get updated playlist with new byte range (and that one should be updated after video file). I believe this restriction was already in place anyway, because there already were checks for HLS_SINGLE_FILE not being set, before doing actual rename, so this was just a simplification of those conditions.
not me to decide, please ;)
if playlist will always be done via .tmp, we will have a choice.

not you, it was introduced by 223d2bde22ce33dcbcb6f17f234b609cb98f1fb6
