I may have invented a new class of crossword clue in the shower. On the other hand, someone else may well have thought of it already.

Docker to line up, we predict, awaiting first two notes (9).

Highlight the whitespace to read the answer, which is: "STEVEDORE".

B. isn't sure this would be adopted, because (whitespace again: software differs from mobile to mobile, so not everyone's phone will predict "queue" as "steve". On the other hand, I think the interchangeability means it still works.

Have any of you cruciverbalists encountered clues of this type? If not, do you think they might catch on?
