Most people would read the above as signing off/out of the discussion.
Would that it had been so.

There is an English expression that comes to mind here: BEATING A DEAD

No one cares about the proposal. It is somewhere between irrelevant, and
actively bad--primarily by harming readability.
You act as if writing out an unused parameter is somehow a wanton act of
waste that is eating into the world's limited supply of available variables.

Minor point, but it is syntactically valid to write `function(_, _, arg)`,
so you don't have to "use up another variable binding" with the second
unused parameter.

In case you didn't notice, the proposal is not getting any traction and
will never get any traction.
Move on.
