Subject: Re: [std-proposals] Proposal: Consistent Reflection Naming

Your objection to "reflexpr" sounds good to me. ("reflectof" sounds about
right, by analogy to "alignof" — neither one is grammatical, but they're
ungrammatical in analogous ways.)
I'm not qualified to comment on the second part. It sounds like the
situation is a mess before your change, but also still quite a bit of a
mess after your change.
I do think you should clarify whether you are proposing that e.g. `reify_v`
be a synonym for `reify_value`, or if you're just proposing multiple
mutually-exclusive alternatives for discussion. If you are proposing
mutually-exclusive alternatives, you should express a clear preference for
one over the others, with rationale.
