I prefer this notation, even though it's more verbose. I think it should be supported along with a short cut syntax.
This problem seems analogous to view lookup -- "content/++view++index.html" and "content/@@index.html" are equivalent.
So, applied to adapters, we could use:
content/++adapter++dc/title (or '++adapt++')
one could use:
or perhaps (yuckier):
I'd hate to see Yet Another Traversal Syntax introduced when we already have a decent pattern established.
