I wasn't there, so not party to the discussion but in my opinion I
just don't see this as confusing,
if anything I think having to distinct methods is good.  Those who
think in routes mode just worry about it and those that like traversal
use that mode.  The combined mode is something experts who want both
can do.

My concern is you will be mixing to different modes of working and
therefore we end up with wierd corner cases that less experienced
users will then have trouble diagnosing. (ie understanding precedence
of traversal and routes matches when names are similiar)

This seems like a slippery road to strange magical behaviour ;-)

But hey like I said I wasn't there so don't know the background to the confusion
