Yes, this is certainly an annoyance :-). However, we didn't have
backcompat high up the list of priorities with these proposals -
instead we wanted to look at how TH and QQ might be redesigned to work
together a bit more neatly if we were starting with a clean slate

You can of course choose more expressive names than "e" and "t" if
you're going to break backcompat anyway,
