I am not in favor of them too, just check the archives for some nice

I would really strongly suggest not to drop the BCSymbolSet classes.
They define the type of sequence we are dealing with and also function
as a datafilter to make sure that only the correct symbols are added to
a certain sequence.

I think that's what is confusing me, especially you meant them to be a
replacement for BCSymbol.
