We could. But then verifier won't have an easy way to verify that.
For example, the above is expected:

      int prog(struct bpf_map *map, u64 seq_num) {
         if (seq_num >> 63)
           return 0;
         ... map->id ...
         ... map->user_cnt ...
      }

But if user writes

      int prog(struct bpf_map *map, u64 seq_num) {
          ... map->id ...
          ... map->user_cnt ...
      }

verifier won't be easy to conclude inproper map pointer tracing
here and in the above map->id, map->user_cnt will cause
exceptions and they will silently get value 0.

I do have another potential use case for this ptr_to_btf_id_or_null,
e.g., for tcp6, instead of pointer casting, I could have bpf_prog
like
     int prog(..., struct tcp6_sock *tcp_sk,
              struct timewait_sock *tw_sk, struct request_sock *req_sk) {
         if (tcp_sk) { /* dump tcp_sk ... */ }
         if (tw_sk) { /* dump tw_sk ... */ }
         if (req_sk) { /* dump req_sk ... */ }
     }
The kernel infrastructure will ensure at any time only one
of tcp_sk/tw_sk/req_sk is valid and the other two is NULL.
