Fair point, but I honestly do not see how the stated very strong burden of proof to revert previous proposals has been met. The new proposal does seem to do anything really to address the needs of those that have a legitimate use for scoped access and the current state of things does not make life impossible for people who want to use file based visibility only or mostly. I really want to avoid having another proposal like the one that removed argument labels from blocks (burying them from the type param) that is incomplete and supposed to get addressed, but still has not been almost a year later.

This proposal as it is does not feel complete and I do not think this helps it satisfy the burden of proof needed for this release.
