Ok, I've taken a look. Markups are so undelimited in their nature

So we are likely better off with a new command name. "\combines"
would also be
a possibility but is probably too cute/confusing/unhyphenated. Now if
basically phase out \combine and replace most of its uses manually, it
become an option just to use some _unrelated_ word.
Like \superimpose or \overlay or \collect or something other nice. Or
the bikeshed in the originally proposed color.
Thanks for your time looking into a possible convert-rule.
I'm really tempted to delete old \combine and fixing all occurences in
Would it be an option to do a convert-rule outputting "Not smart enough
to ..."? for a combine-command without a markup-list as argument?
I seem to remember something like that has been done before.
If that's not feasible or wanted, I'd prefer \combine-list, because it's
descriptive (in a technical way) or \overlay, because there is a
LSR-snippet providing the functionality already and some users may be
used to it.
What do people think?
I suggest to let this one on REVIEW for another circle
