    The Beta 2 version I have allows it as you say.

    No, it was the implementation that defined the language. For whatever
    reason, they defined it a certain way. The "market speak" you're
    talking about was in the user doc and only told how to use what was
    defined.

    So, when they come up with the next bright idea you can rewrite your
    code again (again).
