My concern with this proposal is that the process that generates the C++ enum values transforms dots into underscores. Mixing dots and underscores in the IR seems really bad because there are then multiple possible IR values for any given C++ value. I’d much prefer that we remove the existing users to underscores and make it explicit that dot in IR means underscore in C++.
