"Cleaner"?  Not at all.  I'd say it's the more expressive solution, 
perhaps, but I definitely wouldn't choose the word "cleaner" for 
something which, to me, adds fairly unnecessary text.

But it's clearly a subjective matter, and as the one of us not involved 
in doing the real work here, I'll bow to your judgement on the matter. ;-)
