Whilst that is true, the generic interface can be somewhat tortuous for 
users, for example avoiding spaces if not quoting, where to quote, what 
type of quote (single double) what characters to escape, when to escape, 
which punctuation where, etc.

However if it is implemented as a filter, and a shortcut (by means of 
the mapping control) is arranged, then we will have the best of both 
worlds. Total control when it is needed. But simplicity when it is not.
