Sebastian being sad is one of the things we all have to live with... but 
joking apart, may I remind Council that we only recently introduced 
@type, motivated by a desire to solve precisely the non-breaking 
hyphenation problem? So the compatibility issue is not a long standing 
one -- it's not like e.g. taking away @ed and saying you have to use 
@type for that as well.
