Ah, but that definition is inaccurate, which is why the difficulty arises to begin with.
I think that to know the language, you have to know such subtleties. But of course, at the biginning, using a less error-prone alternative is best. And I think the abbreviate syntax is more intuitive and readable to the non-used eye.
It is, until it gets you into trouble because you think it's defined one way and it's actually defined another. In other words, what you gain somewhere, you lose elsewhere.
Of course I prefer to show the truth of the matter -- and do, to anyone who has ears to hear. But for learners who get all huffy that something doesn't work the way they think it "should", it's nice to have a simple alternative that doesn't pull their chains.
