No, \partial uses measurePosition internally. It is a beat

Right, so if \partial generates odd warnings or effects,
then measurePosition would too.  Why would measurePosition
behave any differently, as the text suggests?

I don't know, but this has been discussed many times on this list.
Please look for previous emails from Han-Wen.

I've never seen any good motivation mentioned on the listm just
Han-Wen's "don't do that".

Some month ago, someone posted an example that behaved differently when
using \partial and when setting measurePosition, perhaps because
implicitly created contexts are not created exactly the same way when
you use \partial and when you set the property, but in that example the
behaviour was better when using \partial, so I couldn't see that it
supported the claim in the NR.
