However, despite the fact that your response appears well thought out -- in fact, excellent, comprehensive and clear -- I'm not strongly enough persuaded to adopt your package.

Your objective appears to boil down to 'maintain consistency, across multi-programmer work, across files, and across interdependent packages' (a point on which I'm wholly in agreement) but that's a best practice in itself; most of the details you enumerate are just details and could vary widely from establishment to establishment while still useful as elements informing a local "best practice."

Speaking of details, the advice I received somewhere, long ago and in a faraway place -- most likely -- that one should use use single quotes rather than double when assigning values, etc, might fit well with your scheme. If nothing else, it tends, for me, anyway, to pay attention to interpolation issues.
