I think a switching regression is more appropriate if y1 were measured with 
one of two instruments. Switching regression is used for cases when the 
explained variable consists of two (or more) unobserved groups. This seems 
more a case of measurement error in the explanatory variable. This doesn't
solve your problem though...
