What's the point though?  The requirement that you declare your intent
to use "..." doesn't seem particular onerous, it helps document your
interface, and I imagine it could help a simple compiler do a better

The "documents your interface" point seems like the most important one
-- lua is somewhat relaxed as a language, but function signatures seem
like a good place to be a bit more strict...
