Maybe it would take getting used to, but it's perfectly natural once you know to look for it. I've never once had issues and I don't think many people do.

This talk may be of some interest...

I don't want to get used to it.

The fact is that I think it happens to be bloody stupid.

When there are more obvious and viable ways to do the same thing. Like using a word before the variable that says its level of protection. What a great Idea I have just invented keywords for a protection level.

It is simple and unambiguous.
