Complete?  Try finding something that doesn't work.

Grabbed the code from here and did some testing.
From the experimental/empirical approach:
Looks _great_ to me!
Up to now I've not found a single bit of a disadvantage or limitation

Changes, regtests, snippets, documentation.  All that would be
warranted and
required, turning this from a 60-line change to a 1000-line change,
and that's
before translations.  But that's not the main problem for me.  The
main problem
is that the feature itself is straightforward and obvious, but
examples and
descriptions are arbitrary and there are thousands of different ways
to tell the

And whatever way I pick is sure to be substantially rewritten anyway.
So it's a
bit of a fight for me to muster the energy for the first shot at it.
