Thing is, the "object shorthand" isn't new at all - it's been there since day 1 :) See react-redux issue #1 for early discussion. It's even in the existing API docs, but it's kinda buried in there, and you have to squint hard at the right paragraph to understand it.
The "awareness" thing is mostly a general principle. I think it's worth trying to keep most components generic and reusable in the sense that they shouldn't care where their props are coming from. It's not always achievable, but it's a useful long-term architectural objective.
Well, you learn something new every day!
Thanks for the insight, Mark!
