Well the OP appeared to be writing brand new production oriented code and that was what triggered my thinking

It's instructive to have some knowledge of MI just to be able to better
understand what goes on under the covers. But of course, I would not want
to write in MI for hardly any practical purpose anymore. Just to open a
display file and do simple IO is a LOT of work!

No disagreement - and if you think writing in MI is a pain try writing the code that generates that MI in the first place!
