I've been quiet on this thread so far but my $0.02 is:

This feature seems good, fills an obvious gap in existing syntax and is
well-defined, limited in scope and very unlikely to break anything
either now, or in the future. It doesn't limit us to anything else we'd
need to support around it. It doesn't feel like it needs to be
experimental as there really are no degrees of freedom left in it with
which to experiment.

In summary: I vote it be added as it stands, un-experimentally.
