Bryan is obviously not unaware of the prior art and has explained his
rationale. There is a crucial distinction between those other examples
and text, namely that those other containers are intended to work
element-wise and text isn't.

I fear I am contributing to the bureaucratic paper-shuffling I've been
complaining about -- I think my vote is clear and I'll be bowing out
of the discussion now.
