What precise problems to you see?

It is exactly my intention that there is no visual indication for that.

Many may have writen in the past things like

.if \\nA=1&(\\nB!=2) ...
.if \\nA=1&(!\\nB=2) ...
.if \\n(.$>1&"\\$1"-L" ...

and had been surprised that it doesn'd work.  This will be "fixed" then, that's 
it.  Of course--if that would not be compatible anymore this way is not 
feasible.  You and Ralph may be right regarding that but at the moment I can't 
imagine any problem.
