Okay - so:

   the <quoted-or-unquoted-literal> of ...

Is the *only* place where a check to make sure something is an unquoted
literal before looking up a var *is not* done... So I think this was 
*not* intended and is a mistake. i.e.

   the "foobar" of ...

Should actually throw an error at the moment!
