You're making an argument about simplification in a thread about
middle-click, but the designs for what might happen to middle-click

to wait until the text selection designs have been documented before
we discuss it. :)

  I think ”have not been publicised” is the exact pain point of design
process.  Wider community has no insight into design until it's
finished.  And it's too late for a meaningful input at that point.

The designs haven't been publicised because they are not sufficiently
developed, and as such have not been documented. Once they are there
will be opportunity for discussion.

Just because a design is documented does not mean that it is fixed,
and I fully expect that the designs will be changed as a result of
public discussion. That's what happened with the system status menu
last cycle, and I think that the resulting design benefited. I see no
reason why the same process should not be effective in this case.
