Keys in a struct literal are incorrectly treated as keywords.Since x.contains = 1; is perfectly legal, x = { contains = 1 }; should also be perfectly legal.

Try this code:<cfset x = { contains = 1 } />It fails. Yet the following code is valid:<cfset x.contains = 1 />

Invalid CFML construct found on line 1 at column 12.ColdFusion was looking at the following text:{The CFML compiler was processing:A cfset tag beginning on line 1, column 2. The error occurred in /Library/WebServer/Documents/cf9test/contains.cfm: line 11 : <cfset x = { contains = 1 } />

+1 - I suspect the "Won't Fix" is due to Adobe's acknowledgement that some struct/array literal notation fixes "would need almost a re-write for implicit struct/array implementation" (see CF-3740276).
