I pretty much agree - and in any case it ought to be #indefiniteArticle, at least in English. Further, the simple test for the next word starting with a vowel isn't as useful as it could be. Consider the case of an abbreviation or initialism such as 'FTD'. It should be 'an FTD'. Plenty of very confusing an not necessarily logical cases to get lost in!
