Bailout planning in CCR and SCR

In CCR dive planning, allowing for sufficient gas volume depends on a 
knowledge of which gas sources are used CC and which gas sources are 
used for bailout (=OC). For CCR, bailout is indicated by a 1-minute dive 
segment with setpoint of 0 and subsequent gas use calculations are 
performed assuming open circuit. In the case of SCR, a setpoint makes no 
sense and I cannot find a way to signify a switch to OC: gas consumption 
is calculated assuming the dilution ratio specified in the preferences. 
Is there a way to get around this?

Kind regards,
