I agree that this syntax is not very useful, and it may be considered for
removal:
int[] dict = [1:2, 3:4, 5:6];

In D there is other syntax that is left from C or adapted from C that gives
problems:

enum string[5] data = ["green", "magenta", "blue" "red", "yellow"];
static assert(data[4] == "yellow"); // asserts
void main() {
    string s(); // what is this?
    int x1 = 066; // octal
    double[2] a = [1.0, 2.0];
    double[2] b = [3.0, 4.0];
    double[2] c[] = a[] + b[]; // silly error
}
