Thus far each of the prospective edge cases relevant to the proposal have
been technically solved, save for duplicate identifier names and exports
from the same file, which appears to be avoidable.

Have no "faith" in anything, therefore "good" and "bad" preceding "faith"
are as irrelevant as "good" or "bad".

You can use what is available now and write your own language in your spare
