This seems dangerious, and unnecessary.

If some future RFC defines this flag, we'll have to change
this and add ugly compat code to keep older tools working.

Why not just create a new IFLA_GRE_* attribute to pass in
flags like this that purely are private to the GRE Linux
tunnel driver and have nothing to do with values defined
by GRE tunnel headers at all?

I'm definitely not applying this as-is.
