Well, I certainly understand what you mean, but the fact that I tried
to do it shows that it's sometimes needed! The use case is a small
TODO, noted in passing, being absorbed into a larger piece of work when
it becomes clear that there is a general problem to be solved.

These inline tasks mostly appear in the middle of my work log file,
which is the digital equivalent of a lab book or diary. Everything
I do at work gets written down as it happens, and that sometimes
includes TODO items.

Fair enough! It's also worth considering the point that the function
does actually work; it just leaves a spare END line.
