I don’t want my observation to hold back this change if everyone else likes it,

What’s the danger that you see?
The alternative would be to deprecate using this input method. I don’t see any reason for that: it’s a useful tool, so we shouldn’t keep such limitations as this. Perhaps it would make sense to organise the list in NR A.13 with subheadings, that’s the only issue I /would/ see with a much larger number of entries.

Best, Simon
