I like it too, until I try to use it too much. :)  It provides a very nice convenience within the language but creates a large complication if you try to use the values outside of the language.  If you really think about it, it seems a little silly that we have to have a BiF for accessing the protocol of a port.  If it was a record or a field in a conn_id we would be able to reuse existing knowledge to access the protocol.
