You're concerned about the corner cases. I'm concerned about my use case. To 
say that "it won't ever work well" is wrong, since it works fine for me now. 
What you call "eliminating confusion" I call "throwing out the baby with the
bathwater."

I'm not even saying don't throw out the bathwater. I'm just asking how this
baby should swim in the new bathwater. (Talk about a tortured baby, er,
metaphor.) :)
