One of the people who proposed a MOVE argued that the command wasn't a 
shortcut in case of... at least three formats that were in use at the time. 
MH, djb's format and one more. I don't remember the details. But I do 
remember that Mark ignored that, and that I assumed that the shortcut 
argument was just a superficial rhetorical device, not a deeply held 
conviction.

I found his position very puzzling.
