Re: before- and after-string issues

    Conceptually, overlays and their properties have no association with
    surrounding text - at least no such association is mentioned anywhere.
    An overlay property - be it a face or a before-string - is associated
    with an overlay and nothing else.

Sorry, I don't agree with you.

    Moreover, your argument fails to explain the following behavior of
    current Emacs: For one and the same zero-length overlay an associated
    before-string appears before the after-string.

We're discussing what is right to do, not what the current code does.
