No, it means nothing of the sort.  An API to access this would introduce
none of the problems with the multi-element approach; it would be simple
and straightforward to do.

Only if there are actual problems solved by doing so, which there don't
seem to be.  Instead, people seem to be hunting for excuses to use parts of
the other proposal just for the sake of using them, not to solve any actual
problem.  ("That's not a good reason to do it?  Hold on, let me try to come
up with another...")
