C-style arrays have the property that (array + offset), provided offset is within the array, can be treated as a shorter array of the same type.
Giving a value within the string special semantics preserves that property; giving a position withing that string special semantics does not.

Adding features does not necessarily increase functionality -- it just makes the manuals thicker.
