There's no real motivation to do that actually.  These constructs are very 
unique, and the fact they have construct-specific syntax doesn't have any 
negative impact, as it's still within the standard syntax rules of PHP (all 
but echo, which is a remnant of PHP/FI 2, and perhaps it was a mistake to 
copy its syntax as-is).
Let's not look for problems where they don't exist...
