Nope, Perl 6 still has to be picky about when it is expecting a term and when it is expecting an operator. It's vaguely possible we could allow
&foo: 1, 2, 3
however, since there are already other cases where a colon allows us to omit the parens. Can't say it's high on my list of priorities though.
