Actually the ambiguity I was referring to is about what's an attribute and what's content.

  (some-function a b c d e f g)
Vanilla arc assumes all of "a b c d e f g" are regular arguments. If you want to supply named arguments, you'd need an extra pair of parens

  (some-function a b c (d x) (g y))
I wanted to get rid of the extra parenthesis without introducing ambiguity, and do it in a manner that's consistent with the way html tags work.

Now of course, one could still write confusing code:

    (= word 'class)
    ; some pages later:
    (div word "class-name" "actual-content")
btw, (e 'div ....) also works.
