Should I assume that you mean the proposed syntax falls short in one or more
of the four categories you identified?
If you care to elaborate on some of these short-comings I would be very
happy to alter my proposal in order to meet the needs of a wider audience.
That was in fact the purpose of proposing it at all.
Thanks for your comments,
