I'd add:

5. It appears (to dwheeler) to be more complicated to define and to implement.
6. This is "partial dedenting" approach is backwards-compatible with the 
current spec,
and thus could be added *later* if desired.

The more I look at this, the more complicated it gets.  I'd rather document it 
as a
potential future extension/direction, and not try to get this into 
sweet-expressions version 1.0.
