And, btw, we are not really "committed to the current strategy".  What
the FOO-ts-mode commands do is entirely up to us, and if we find a way
of doing that as some kind of minor customization that is part of the
"traditional" FOO-mode, we can easily do it in the future.  So I
really don't see a need to hurry with alternative strategies, as we
don't yet have enough data to validate any strategies for this
purpose.  What we have now is our best shot, as the alternatives we
considered, including something similar to what you propose, each one
had either significant disadvantages or not enough advantages.
