[swift-evolution] [Review] SE-0090: Remove .self and freely allow type references in expressions

Could we reconsider rejecting the uppercase and lowercase conventions as a
syntactic requirement? While I still disagree with enum cases not being
UpperCamelCase, that decision narrows the 'approved' enough that the
syntactic requirement would line up with guidance. It would also make
teaching the conventions much easier. New students who, for whatever
reason, prefer naming variables with upper camel case would have immediate
and concrete feedback from the dev tools that that is non-idiomatic.

If that is a non starter, let me try another. Was a disambiguating token
preceding the type reference considered?
