It's just the comment that's innaccurate (I know this because Ben and
Mike and I were talking about this in depth today).

What's really going on is, the track editor behaves specially when
it's told to do revision bumping itself -- and the only time we know
of when it does that is when one is committing to an XML file during a
test run (for example).

But the track editor is not sensitive to which editor(s) it's composed
with, that would indeed be badness. It is sensitive to the arguments
it was obtained with, as it should be (or soon will be).
