I don't know how valid my feeling is, but "not seen in practice" can
mean either of two things: that it is an unnatural use case, or people
are not doing it because it is currently too hard to do it right. If
it is the first, it'd be right for us to reject it as a weak use case;
if it is the second case, we'd be unnecessarily discouraging an
otherwise natural use.
