As I proposed they'd be in different translation units, so the compiler
wouldn't see the definition of the function, just the declaration.

That'd probably be a bad idea, for performance reasons.

Hm? I don't know what you mean by those issues.

I'd value consistency higher here.

I'd just use the checked version here, seems like a good thing to check
for, and I can't imagine it matters performance wise.

I don't know what that comment is supposed to mean?

I think I'd just put these as inlines in the header.
