Not really.

My policy is to guarantee that there are /no/ problems related to mistyped identifiers. Not just /this/ time I run my program, but /every/ time I run it.

As far as I can tell, I /cannot/ represent that as a user-defined "policy", so your justification is not valid.

I know that I could achieve that by using a language /different /from Lua. But I'd like to achieve that in Lua, and so I want to to understand why it is not possible.

So in other words you want explicit upvalue syntax? Upvalues as part of function signatures? Yeah me too! But I want it with defined order so my loadx lib[1] becomes more useful.
