Leaving former arguments (including mine, sure) aside and focussing on this proposal, it might still be more useful and more maintainable to target specific implementations on another level, for example by

  foo:::Trident {}

This admittedly lame since quick counterproposal targets maintainability (principle of nearness, “hacked” stuff can be close to the regular stuff) and takes into account the relatively rare (in comparison, yes) cases in which implementation-specific rules or declarations are needed.
