FWIW, I think the proposed syntax is just fine.

If it has been chosen to fit in with future plans for N3 (and I don't know 
that it has), I really don't see a problem there.

This is a data format that has been designed for expressing test cases, and 
one of the key tools for evaluating test cases is cwm, so I think a little 
deference in that direction is not at all inappropriate.
