I tried implementing it and realized:

1. It have issues with backwards compatibility (like you mentioned).
There are some workarounds but they add complexity 2. It can make other
things complicated. For example using `assoc' to look things up no longer
works so a lot needs to be updated.

Personally I think it's worth it as it makes things much clearer but I
understand why others may not feel that way and it's not something I
feel strongly enough about to push for.

My pleasure, I've attached a patch to this email.  I put something
together but I wasn't sure how it should be styled/formatted so if
anyone has any suggestions I'd be happy to update it.

+RFLOC can be a refile location obtained in a different way.  It

 MSG is a string to replace \"Refile\" in the default prompt with
 another verb.  E.g. `org-copy' sets this parameter to \"Copy\".
