Yes, it's a somewhat unfortunate quirk in the syntax – I've also been
bitten by it in the past in a similar situation – but badly necessary
to allow short specification of (the equivalent of) template functions
e.g. as parameters to higher order functions. We also have the »=>«
notation now, but not every delegate consists of a single expression.

A convention I found useful is to use a single underscore, but
technically that's just an arbitrary valid identifier.

No, function/delegate literals are the only place where this rules are
