Definitely. I use lots of single character aliases. If those are
expanded everywhere they appear in input strings, I will have a very
hard time.

what all other clients I have tried do.

Comparing with tintin++, aliases are first word only, if you want
expansion of a string everywhere, you use a substitution.
