That may be true, but I stand by what I said.
It is fine to have a structured editing mode, but it was
bad design to make other facilities depend on it in this way.
That makes a distortion in the overall design of Emacs.

The other facilities should be separate things, even if they
can work with the structured editing mode.  Even if they ALWAYS
use the structured editing mode, they should be separate
as far as the user is concerned, not "part of" it.
