So we have several features that, somewhere in the implementation, will

And the current major mode mostly does TRT already, as you yourself
point out.

There's no *and* here. I'm talking about how the current major mode will have to function.

It does TRT only for Xref, but not for completion-at-point-functions, or Flymake/Flycheck. As I have pointed out in some detail.

Speaking of no-brainers, I don't see why you're fighting this one.

I don't like the idea, given the motivation.  Am I allowed to have gut

I suppose. Though, when asked, in similar situations I try to describe my "gut feeling" in logical terms, in terms of user experience, etc. Similarly to what I have done in this discussion.

When one side wields explanations and another is based on gut feeling, is often when we have long, pointless discussions like this one.

Is the question "why you're fighting this one" only
applicable to me?

I don't think so. In general, we should use it more often.

For instance, in the very discussion where I got the "no-brainer" quote from, I conceded the essence of the change and now only focus on the details of the implementation.
