Of course this equality must break.
That was stated at the outset.

As I said before, this may be impossible
or undesirable.  But, as I said before,
it seems prima facie natural for
M[i] to be ordinary Python indexing
while M[i,:] is numpy indexing,
each with its own natural interpretation.

In any case, you may be spending too much
energy on this.  I am not a developer, and
no developer has expressed a desire to make
such a change.  The current behavior is
currently safe (if odd).
