Um, boggle. Why was this new syntax introduced?

I'm guessing the choice was either remove it from the
narrative or add it to the BNF.

yes, probably that too, since the relevant narrative hasn't
changed significantly from 2821.

 Flipping the coin the other way might be better.

No opinion, but you are the second person to speak up, so I'm
assigning Issue 19 to this.
