No definitely not ISAMUX/ISANS, its purpose is for switching (paging in) actual opcodes.  Not quite true, LE/BE kinda flips in LE variants of LD/ST.

An FP CSR (dedicated or fields) makes more sense I think because it's quite a few bits, and I can see some potential value in the same bits being applied to F, G, H and Q as well.
