I think the <!-- more --> is about the least desirable means of
expressing "there's a divider between that text and this text". So
most clients will adopt a different means of expressing it, rather
than reusing the same hack.

So in this case the API is perfect, because it correctly identifies
the semantic meaning of the two chunks of text, without forcing a
weird shorthand on clients. It would be annoying to have to scan for
and manually divide based on the presence of this magic tag.
