Because you can implement both behaviours with the current semantics, but
only one behaviour (yors) with your proposed semantics.

Maybe this has changed in 1.1.0 (which I'm using currently).

I must have misunderstood your problem: why do you want to know the ascent or
the descent of a given string?

And not even defined.

But that wouldn't help you... wether a given character/string has an
ascent doesn't tell you how much it is (which is what you want to know?)
