Gets or sets a value indicating whether...

Rule SA1623. Is this a little too prescriptive perhaps?

I have a property that starts:

    Gets or sets a value indicating how

It would be very difficult to word it in terms of "whether".

That rule should only be thrown for properties of type bool. To me, "whether" is the correct word choice for a true/false property.
