Right, and my point isn't that it is difficult to understand or
remember once you get it, but that it's difficult to get it in the
first place, and that this convention is solely based on the one used
in the datasheet, which is an abstraction violation in itself.

I guess that's really up to Mark here, but one solution would be to
allow to couple the controls explicitly instead of relying solely on
the fact that they share the same controls array pointer.
