I understand your point, and perhaps it's OK in `superword-mode' because
we can make that modification implicit in choosing to use that mode.  It
was not OK in `cfengine-mode', I quote the last word in that exchange:

`cfengine-mode' works properly now so it's not under discussion, but I
mention it for context.

So I'd be OK with whatever direction is chosen by the Emacs maintainers.
I can change `superword-mode' to DTRT; I have no strong personal
preference either way.

Also, I don't think you need to CC Stefan directly, he reads this list.

(I personally prefer to get no CC off-list, unless you want to be sure I
won't miss the beginning of a thread, and I've set my headers
accordingly.  This is not to be anti-social but simply because I use
GMane and often leave e-mail unseen for weeks and months.)
