The IDE can *know* that it's an error because the reserved token "msg"
was used as a formal parameter name
on mouseUp msg
The IDE cannot know at the usage of that formal parameter (e.g. put
"abc" into msg), but it can, and should, know at the handler / parameter
declaration. (Some other reserved words already produce an error
on mouseUp seconds
gives the error "Handler: not a valid parameter name"
