I don't understand what the purpose of this experimentation is.  What
exactly do you want to find out with these "experiments"?

Instead of making a change that we might want to completely revamp
(or, worse, get stuck with an ugly API because it's too much trouble
to revamp), why not just adopt Stefan's very reasonable plan:
