I am against making a change like this outwith[1] of GLISS.  It
could involve a lot of user pain (and documentation-editing
pain!), so I think it's important to at least pretend[2] to have
good user consultation beforehand.

[1] that's the only part of Scottish vocabular or accent that I've
been able to pick up, so I'm sticking to it.

[2] the phrase "at least pretend" doesn't mean that we will _only_
be pretending.

As far as the actual proposal goes, I'm generally in favor.
