While that is clearly the documented and intended behavior, it seems much
less like a "feature" to me than a ... well, what's the difference between
"bug" and "design flaw" -- just that one is documented and the other isn't?

No offense intended to Julian, but I'm not sure how that could be called a
useful feature, and to me it's a clear violation of the "principle of least
surprises".  I'd be quite happy to see this change in a future release such
that fromorto stops working unless it is exactly "fromorto".
