I think that's only because you already know what it's
supposed to mean.

To me, it's very far from clear that the "..." means
"the expression after this really goes way down there
after the suite".

Also, anything which only addresses test-at-bottom and
not test-half-way-through only covers a very small
proportion of use cases, IMO.
