I understand and appreciate your opinion. Lets look what we have and choose
which option to use :

a) value as param

looks not very good for me as value may have AS word inside and confuse
reader. Also i prefer to see param name before expression.

b) param is value

looks better for me

c) param := value

looks almost ok

d) param <= value, or value => param

i don't like it

More ?
