None of the things I've mentioned are new concerns, and I brought all
of them up (and more) a long time ago back when I was giving thought
to the PT spec.

I've basically given up at this point, and to be honest I gave up
shortly after I initially started making noises about improving the
spec because it was clear that while I was trying to improve the
existing interface while preserving the overall architecture, everyone
else was far more interested in "lets make everything into a bunch of
library code".
