It would only make sense to me to do this if the components are generally
reusable, in the iso11179 sense.
Which means that we would just be formalising the CQL naming system into
the query language, rather than as an implementation guideline.
So you'd end up with:
instead of rec.recordCreationAgentName
Or rec.author or rec.creator or rec.record/dc.author
Or any of the myriad ways to put these things together.
It further exacerbates Eliot's problem of wanting to support aliases based
on existing usage.
