Well, that depends on whether idents can contain other idents, var(var(foo)var(bar)) anyone? Or should I stop before Tab's brain seizes up again? ;-)

But seriously, my experience from programming is that the more parentheses on a line, the harder it is to unpick and understand the different components of an expression, and a different manner of identification, like the $ syntax, makes things easier to parse from a human perspective.
