Good point, why not.  My motivation was however to be able to write heredocs without indentation in a nice and clear way.

I have just thought of proposing exactly the same "anonymous" syntax.

For whatever it is worth, i've just had this idea of a new heredoc syntax for some programming language:

    class C
      def f(x)
        print >>Message1 + >>Message2
    Message1:
    > Literal text
    > ------------
    > Here text.
    >
    Message2:
    >> Text with interpolation and escapes
    >> -----------------------------------
    >> Here text with interpolation: #{ x }.
    >>
      end
    end
