possessive right for component selection?

12.3: proj.adda/syntax/possessive right for component selection?:
. I've been overloading the possessive for use as
both an obj`call and an obj`component,
any complications?
. wasn't there some new idea for record syntax,
like obj.component? yes:

. the consequence was,
if a name already stands for a type,
it can't be used as the name for any component .
. that would be easy if there was a rule like
(type`names must be capitalized),
but most would rather write .int than .Z .
. adde can help out by auto-formatting types in a bold font .
