Maybe so, but that ship has sailed more than 2 years ago, and was
preceded by a long discussion.  I didn't read all of it now, but
AFAIU, the reason for using a character with a display property was to
make the separator not editable when the user edits the history.  So
that design decision and the resulting code we have now had some
justification, and any replacement will have to support the same
features, which I think a simple string will not do.
