Maybe it would've elicited better reception if the blinking was not
performed with a cursor jump (if the cursor stayed where it was, and the
blink was performed in, say, show-paren-match).  As it is, my first
impression of using it was, how do I get my cursor back?

You can ignore it after the first impression wears off and you get it,
but it still takes some small amount of cognitive load that maybe would
be better spent elsewhere.

Yes, sure, thanks. Though some of my expectations might be different
from the general public.

Also yes.
