You may, if you like. I think it would be wonderful that you head those posts with "and now, a little bit of voseo". I for one avoid it, not because I think there's anything wrong with it -in fact, I think t to be extremely old fashion, almost baroque- but to avoid stressing beginners and intermediate students with so many variations.

After all, no-one wants anyone to say "my goodness, this language is a nightmare ... I'll switch to Swahili" .
