No one has a full-perspective. We all work with our partial perspective.
That's not an issue. I am simply pointing out the irony it only takes
one complaint to change something that's in Emacs for a long time but we
often forget the majority that are happy with the feature never come and
tell us from time to time what a great feature it is, they love it and
don't change it.

For example, a lot of lisp programmers use paredit (not part of emacs).
Two or three major releases ago, the syntax of @ in (emacs-)lisp mode
was changed so that some unusual function names containing ,@ could
fontify properly, in doing so typing `,@(' in paredit gives you `,@ ()'
instead of `,@()'.

I already joined in but I am a little short of time lately.
