Random comment, but in your code examples like this:

 let color = (if stop then Color.red else Color.green)  

I’d suggest including the existing ternary version.  The proposal is really about replacing ternary with this syntax, so it should show the “before and after”, not just the after.  Your pitch is that code will look better / be easier to read if this proposal goes through, so you should demonstrate that.
