A minimal example is intended to help debug an issue by making it clear where the problem lies. So if a 'MWE' is too small to show the issue in real use, I feel it's appropriate to go back and edit. I'd probably make it clear that the original MWE was solved by the answer but that this didn't address your real issue, then provide an updated MWE. This is not ...

The reason for this is that the invalidated answer ...

This answer follows the same principle as my first proposal, only with all colors brightened up a bit, as requested in the comments.

What I like about the highlighter I use daily (GtkSourceView) is that it colors the known control words differently from the unknown and user-defined control sequences. This makes it easier to skip over the standard things and focus your attention to the new command (which in many cases is the focus of the question as well). At the same time it gives a quick ...

As requested, the answer has been undeleted. It is an example of how moderation by users works: After several deletion votes in the review process it got deleted. Then, after several undeletion votes it got undeleted. It shows that a status is not carved in stone and can be adjusted by fellow users. And as said in the comments, it's fine to discuss that ...
