> Why not add something like this to Lua 5.4 ?

If you want to experiment with this idea, my ltokenp tool may be
useful. See

With ltokenp, you could remove "const name" from the source and build
a table of strings which would then be compared to table fields, that
is, identifiers after '.' or literal strings after '[', for instance.

Not a syntactical solution but perhaps good enough for testing the idea.
