Ah, so $!x is only for attributes, and not for private methods, right?
Q. Does the former use the sigil of the has declaration like a variable, as opposed to the function call semantics of $(self!x) ?
So, the user can define a method !x directly, and the $!x notation doesn't call it, but bypasses it (talking MOP instead). A trusted user poking around in the privates must call it.
Am I back on track?
When I'm sure, I can clarify the synopses where it doesn't properly indicate that this is different.
