If a better way of doing something is created then the old methods 
become redundant & should be removed for the reasons Andy Allan 
mentioned in a previous post in this thread. Sarah Hoffmann's reply in 
the Talk thread I posted clearly says is_in:* "is unnecessary"

As far as I can see is_in:* is used for the same things as boundaries, 
but is less efficient & prone to errors.

Are you aware of any utilities that use is_in:*?
