That's not allowed by the grammar currently, though by the
error-recovery rules it would fail nicely (it'll eat content until the
next ";" or "}", like any malformed declaration). I agree that it
looks a little better.  My concern is that it looks a bit more like
mutating, rather than a separate property, so the fact that it works
within the normal cascade system might be confusing.

No.  It's been an off-and-on topic for some time, and is now coming
back into discussion.
