Agreed here also that fancy syntax is not necessary.

IMO a good goal is actually to reduce syntax for new features rather
than increase it.  If new syntax is contemplated, extensible syntax (a
specific proposal for a universal syntax that significantly reduces
parsing risk and does not require the user to try to look up the
meanings of symbols) might be useful.
