Neither Bart nor Roman would indulge me if there was no merit at all to what I want.  Spare the rod and spoil the child.  No ice-cream for breakfast.  If I'm wrong then I hafta buck up and learn to do things the way they are done.  But in this case I'm right -- what's idiosyncratic about wanting full information about a parameter along with it's value?  What's ever wrong with complete information?
This should absolutely not be done.

Why not?  Honest question.  DP can of course remain as a stand-alone function, but what would harm if it were bolted in to typeset?  No axe to grind here, I have what I want, so I'm just wondering why other's shouldn't have it too.  Mind, I suppose core code should not be altered trivially.  So, sure, leave it as a function.  Devs decision.  But I hope the masses get decribe-params one way or another.
