In my experience with binary constants they are only used to set the value of a named constant. Then in the code the named constant is used.
Considering the simple workaround mentioned by Steve, the costs (memory and speed) of adding the power patch to the lua core should be really small/negligible to justify inclusion. To not help out those who use it at the cost of those that don't.
Ps1: I do like the notation
Ps2: nitpick; the memoize element in the workaround doesn't really help as typically every constant is parsed only once
