well, you haven't showed any reason where/why we should use 'here-
documents' at all, you only made an argument for why you think using the
posix-only subset doesn't make sense to you (in your use-case).
It may be as simple as "that is the standard way to provide responses to
an invoked process".
What is in question is code readability. The option suggested makes the
resultant script arguably more readable.
I would however state that "using undocumented features of a program is
likely to produce undesirable side effects" and "a few K may be
significant in your target environment".
Neither of which directly effects me at this time.
