Not quite true. These languages don't have such 'syntatic sugar' things.
IMHO, if a.b is just a syntatic sugar for a["b"] it must work exactly the
same way.

I don't think that this is something particularly worth
fighting for, especially if it complicates the nice slim parser
at all. They'll never realistically work exactly the same way (a["ice-cream"]) so this is quite an acceptable restriction
on what is simply syntactic sugar.
