> Again, the parsing isn't any harder. This is seriously a non-issue, parsing-wise. Whether or not to use any sort of separator token is purely a matter of making it easier to use/understand. "We don't need it" is a reasonable argument against; "this is hard to parse" is not.

We can continue to agree to disagree on that point.

That has the same semantic ambiguity. One can't tell whether `a` (in a subcomponent) is exposed *as* `b` in the host component, or `b` in the host component is mapped *as* `b` in a subcomponent.
