Ah, now I see what you mean.  No reason, it just happened that way as
I wrote this patch up rather quickly.  I'll revert to the old form as
there's no reason to change it.

If I understand you correctly, you are saying that we want kbd to
behave in exactly the same way as before.  I very much agree, there
should be no functional change (a.k.a. bug for bug compatibility).
The method I see for ensuring that is to develop all tests using the
old version of kbd (I use Emacs 27.2 for testing) and then make sure
that the new code passes the same tests.
