The new function should be private. I closed #18131 as partially a duplicate of this.  It has a couple of other suggested wordings for the exception.

I consider the current behavior, in particular the failure of Variable and subclasses when the supposedly optional master is not passed, to be buggy.  So I think backporting should be considered when we settle on a patch.
