 This failing hard with a fatal error seems like a benefit, and is
 something I originally anticipated. It's not something we could have
 introduced after the fact for many of the 2.x `is_*` functions, but
 because `is_main_query` was introduced much later (3.3), we could get away
 with doing so. You'd only get a fatal if you call this too early in
 WordPress load. Given this function has existed in this manner for ~11
 years without incident, I'd consider reversion.
