Of course, and I agree with you entirely when you're dealing with an arbitrary number of nibbles, and I support this proposal for the same reasons you do.
However personally, when dealing with a octet, or an arbitrary number of octets, I believe the byte-pictures would be much easier to deal with (especially when dealing with a lot of raw data).
