... should be a peculiar identifier

I heartily endorse your suggestion, but for a slightly different
(selfish) reason.  I often distribute code for problem sets to
students and I like to put these same ellises ("...") into that code
to indicate the parts that they should fill in.  I, too, have been
bitten by the fact that it's not an identifier since the code can't
even be loaded (let alone executed) when they are present.
