I think the issue is that no one has yet proposed a consistent set of
behaviour for this feature, particularly in the cases that Tom raised.
If you would like this feature, I'd suggest that you outline some
behaviour that everyone can agree upon.

Griping about "intentionally left out" features when the feature itself
is not even well defined doesn't strike me as very productive.
