We have had this discussion already weeks ago, and I couldn't convince
you. So I shouldn't try it again.

I just see this function from a practical point of view, providing an
implementation for a special case (Tramp syntax). file-remote-p
is based on file name handler functions, that means it works over the
file name syntax.

That's why I am not creative enough to see how to implement your
interpretation of that function.

I'm keeping quiet now.
