I've even seen this done, or maybe I did it, I forget, but it's a one time
pass through something like cpp:
#define Store(src, dst) dst = src

to produce the final output.

repeat for all ops of interest. Then, if there is a switch to ASL to not
accept pre-asl-2.0 code you do a clean up stage as needed.
You only need the cpp hack once as you want to switch to the transformed
output.

Not pretty, but maybe ACPI is so simple that it  would work.
