I can see the appeal, I just feel that it has some unneeded changes. Too many array structures and hard to follow.

That being said, my biggest issue is the HTML output in arrays. The method and flow part of the architecture makes perfect sense!

It can be difficult to do but I try not to get hung up on syntactic issues especially when other features of the language bring huge benefits.

I just feel that syntactic and readability is part of the developer experience.

Like I said, I’m the concept has a lot of great benefits. The choice to change the syntactics was stylistic and that I didn’t agree with.

If it ever releases with a cleaner easier to read syntax I would revisit it easily.

Thinking about it a little more, I feel the same way as well. I guess we just have different tastes when it comes to syntax and readability. But that's fine.
