This misrepresents what happened. I proposed a scheme, got feedback, altered the proposal in response to the feedback, gained general (though not universal) agreement, and got an OK from the maintainer before committing the change. The installed scheme differs quite a bit from my personal preference. Like most compromises it's easy for each of us to find something we dislike about it.

I plan to look into the further change you proposed, with an eye toward installing something like it (but I hope simpler) in the master branch. It's a bit late to be fiddling with this sort of thing in the emacs-25 branch, though.
