I understand your viewpoint, but imagine if you actually had a 
formal grammar describing all legal strings for a particular 
interpolated string type.

That would allow you to get high quality IDE support where you 
would get autocompletion, suggestions and early identification of 
spelling errors. Such tooling is reducing cognitive load and 
saving time.
