You're making an argument about simplification in a thread about
middle-click, but the designs for what might happen to middle-click
have neither been finalised nor publicised. I think it would be better
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.

I think that that's the whole complaint about this sort of change. It's a
major change to a core functionality and it's been designed "behind closed
doors"? The complaint (or at least mine) isn't that this sort of change is
happening but that it's being done without any input from users (or in this
case in blatant disregard of the input from users, i.e. several of the
comments on this bugzilla:

Shouldn't the person proposing the change have the opportunity to
develop a well-thought-out proposal?  You make it seem like the posting
of any such proposed design is the end of the discussion, but in reality
it's a design proposal that can and will get discussed before being
implemented (or not).
