My concern is that this shouldn't compile in the first place.
What is xyz?, Is it a free function? Is it a member variable

Oh, but that's precisely the point of opDispatch. ;) It offers
a mechanism to respond to any members that are not found. See
the spec for an example:
Exactly. opDispatch catches calls to missing methods and acts
based on method name which it gets as a string at compile time.
In this case, the idea is this:
auto v1 = Vec!4(4, 5, 6, 7);
auto v2 = v1.xyz; // => Vec!3(4, 5, 6);
auto v3 = v1.wx; // => Vec!2(7, 4);
auto v4 = v1.wxx1; // => Vec!4(7, 4, 4, 1);
