Yes, it should.

I didn't have much time to think about this idea, so I thought I will pass it
on to other people with more time and/or brains before I completely forget it.

As for the bug, let me give you more data points to consider. At the time I
was writing the examples I was simultaneously distracted by my wife (accusing
me of being a computer-o-holic ;) and my cat (wanting me to play with her).
I think it was a bigger "contribution" to this bug :)
