Re 2: That syntax is already in use by `SELECT schema.column`. I do agree that the syntax is a bit cumbersome and harder to learn, but I'm not sure if they could have done much better while being consistent with SQL.

Why can't pg same the same syntax? I'm sure it could detect if it's a table column or a document field - or am I missing something? Why not handle documents and columns the same, with documents a a kind of hierarchical columns.
