comment How to pronunce the suffix “-less”
Yes m is a consonant but the e is there, as such the less on timeless is preceded by a vowel, pronounced or otherwise. As I said, it has very colloquial variation (as we can see by the accepted answer) and even has contextual variation. Maybe I should have said "immediately preceded by a vowel".

comment What's the difference in meaning between “evidence” and “proof”?
The continued answers on this question has reminded me that various disciplines do indeed play with the meaning of proof and theory, usually to facilitate discourse. In law, proof may oft mean as digitig & ornello describe; A scientific theory is often taken as fact, though are still not quite 100% immutable, e.g. the big bang theory which was created as a prediction of the standard model. But the SM is only based on our imperfect observations and also predicts dark, matter, dark energy and dark flow, of which a lot of scientists are still very sceptical of.. remember 'aether'?

comment Is there a single word or phrase to describe a context-less option for “manual” or “automatic”?
Yes, currently it's boolean, but if you want scope to change in the future, then in the future it will not be boolean and the term used should either allow for that (good), or be changed as the enum values are changed (not good). Generally it is known that a variable of a singular type, be it enum or integer or float, will only hold one value, i.e. your enum can be automatic or manual or semi, just as an integer can be 5 or 6 or 7. The control suggestion by @chiastic-security is a good one.
