    I think that boat has sailed long ago.

That kind of argument is invalid in general.
If something is generally undesirable, accepting it
in one place is no reason to accept it in another.

There are many sorts of bad practice in Emacs
that we are trying to gradually get rid of,
and in the meantime, we don't want to add more of it.

I have no opinion about this specific issue.
