Yeah, that's really interesting.

But is it convincing that existing lisp syntax is more valuable than Kernel's approach of no syntax?

Well, I'd say so, yeah. I'd say `foo is a less helpful syntax than a.b, but still helpful.

Thanks. I'm going to keep the qq.() idea up my sleeve. It's totally consistent with my idea that symbols should be overrideable and syntax should not.
