But it ain't broken, so why fix it? It works precisely as specified.

It's a problem when people pretend that a raw Lua table is the
particular data structure they have in mind - "a pure array with
bounds checking", "a pure associative map where nil can be a key",
etc. Unfortunately it is not possible for human programming languages
to guess what kind of data structure is actually intended ;)
