[Bioc-devel] should genome() be so complicated?/add genome report to GRanges show method

For GRanges x, my naive expectation is that genome(x) returns a length-
one tag identifying the genome to which chromosomal coordinates
correspond. The genome() method seems to have sequence-specific
semantics, which makes sense, but when we identify sequence
with chromosome, it seems too complicated. Is there a use case for
a GRanges with sequences from several different genomes?
One reason I am inquiring is that I feel it would be nice to have the
GRanges show() method report, prominently, the genome in use (or NA
if unspecified). This could be accomplished by reporting
unique(genome(x)), and perhaps that would be satisfactory.
after example(genome) :
