The whole rigamarole would be overkill, so: Absolutely. I see no good reason not to.

(As a future direction, we should try to see if we can't open plain variable and function references to using more keywords. For instance, I see no particular reason you couldn't write `default()` even without a dot in front of it; AFAIK the only place it can be used is inside a `switch` statement, and there only with a colon after it, which wouldn't otherwise be valid.)
