Sorry for being terse.
No, that was just a comment about syntax, not semantics.

I was just stating that because of the IsList instance,
we can write  [(2,3)]  instead of  M.fromList [(2,3)]

This would give shorter text in the examples in the API doc -
and has the immense benefit that it already works as-is,
does not need any haddock changes, unicodes, JS, etc.

But it would hide the type distinction (Map vs. List)
so it might turn out to be unhelpful.
