The new caves are difficult to light up as it currently stands, which makes it easy for one to be overwhelmed by constant mob spawns while exploring. What if, similar to fireworks, torches could be launched from a crossbow? They wouldn't emit block light as an entity, but they would become a placed torch once they've landed.
In addition, maybe they could have a special property when they collide with an entity. Either they'd deal very little/no damage, as they have no arrowhead, or they'd light the target on fire. This could be useful in combat, as crossbows can't use the flame enchantment.
I'd imagine these would have the same behavior as fireworks; not being compatible with multishot or piercing for logistics reasons. Maybe they should only be loadable from the offhand as well, to prevent accidentally loading them instead of torches.
