Yeah I kind of assumed that.  My question was more as to how you know
what "they" want/like[*].  It seems reasonably clear that the
different models will lead to some confusion when switching between
them, but is there really evidence of some inherent preference?

It seems to me that both models are convenient/comforting in some
situations and annoying/restrictive in others.
