"meant to be", "should", etc.
The issue is crippling into the language. "Transitional" is almost  
never used as it was "meant to be", nor implemented in such a way to  
help the transition. I guess it's a case of bad design choice, that  
was difficult to know in advance that it would be. But we can try to  
avoid repeating the same mistakes.
