Nit: Forgive me if I am wrong, but `, and` is used for joining two independent
clauses. It would be better to drop the comma.

'insteadOf' is a very specific approach for a general suggestion because it is 
used in url.*.insteadof in the whole codebase. Also, it has a variation 
described in
urls.txt as "pushinsteadof". So, if a problem such as mentioned above arises in
a different scenario 'insteadOf' cannot be used in it.
