Did you not get my mail with the screenshot, URL, and explanation of why I
started this thread? Was that "specific practical purpose" not convincing?

The same use case applies to substituting highlighted display-table entries
to indicate non-breaking spaces, TABs, etc. (though there are alternative
ways to do that).

I asked this question - what's the answer?

If the answer is "no", then isn't that a good reason for the feature?
