There seems to be little pushback on the idea of a better way to name/reference functions, so an RFC page for that seems reasonable. What the syntax is, that's still in heavy bikeshed territory, so maybe don't name the RFC based on the implementation detail yet. :-)
I'd love to get some input from Nikita or Dimitry or someone else with way more parser experience on how feasible any of the options discussed so far would be; if some are vastly more straightforward than others, that carries a lot of weight.
