Major usability issues caused by things not being what they appear
to be?  Not to put too finer point on it, but that is precisely what
this thread has been about from the beginning.

No, because shorthands are known to Lisp.  They aren't a display-time

Several usability issues arising from shorthands have been clearly
described by multiple people during this thread.  Breaking basic tooling
*is* a usability problem.  Symbols not existing by the names used in the
code *is* a usability problem.

I absolutely agree that you are not responsible for irresponsible acts
of others, but I don't think it was at all unreasonable to raise these

Sure, just don't raise them with us.

I was advocating for the removal of a new feature from Emacs Lisp -- this
is the only place I could do that.
