Right, I only intended to change 'haskell-mode' because I'm probably
the only user of it. But then you mentioned the other emacs packages
and I expressed my opinion on the matter. Changing geiser, paredit,
and other emacs packages is going to be disruptive to the work flow of
many people. That's the reason why I'm not interested in doing this
change myself.

But, I agree that it would make sense to change all of them together.
So, I will not change anything, at least for now.
