I'm not sure I understand: are you saying that it is fundamentally
wrong or unclean to have a syntax category for word-constituent
characters that cannot appear at word beginning or end?  If so, please
explain why you think so, because this situation happens with many
characters in human languages, and is not really different from other
similar syntax categories.

If the idea is OK, and only its current implementation is not clean,
then I see no reason to refrain from documenting the Lisp-level
feature, because it will remain unchanged even when the implementation
will be cleaned up.
