It seems theoretically ok, but I am not wild about it. It seems to
have the combined smell of explicit and implicit about it, that I find hard

The current behaviour may cause newcomers some surpirises, but is it really
wrong? How many cases that have been made harder or uglier to solve has it
caused? How many of those would the new behaviour fix?
