Indeed, both were deliberate design choices. Extending the support to cover
the object position and arbitrary nesting would be easy. We haven't done it
not because we saw any technical difficulties but because adding something
later is much easier (from the compatibility viewpoint) than taking it away.

The SA semantics is something we feel considerably less optimistic about.
