You forgot to declare the type, which is mandatory if you want to use
abbreviated cases like ".Red" to construct a one-off like that. That's one
of the reasons I complained that using a Dictionary is not a pleasant
alternative earlier on. The proposal ought to infer the enum Type, just
like a normal Switch statement.

On top of that, the limitations you mention also limit usefulness.

If it weren't for these issues, it would be good enough for me.
