this is unrelated but you just gave me an idea for a 6th solution ("f)") :-)

 f) avoid bypass if the size of the written register is different from
    the required operand :-)

this way, no need to make a complex bypass mux.
This is pretty easy to check, and there would be only 2 cycles
of penalty otherwise (in case of "naughty coding" practices).

oh yes, i like that :-P
