I just wanted to separate the thread from some of the other discussion.

It seems that the TF is still open on the subject. @instanceof always 
bothered me (too geeky, too long, two words, etc). First, I noticed 
MarkB liking the @typeof suggestion, but Dan likes the monosyllabic 
aspect of @type (but we all know is taken), so I suggested @kind (which 
I know has been suggested before) and it seemed to be more popular this 
time around.

Is this something the TF is interested in undertaking (it might not be 
as simple as s/instanceof/kind/g in spec and tests)?
