Improve UX: users easily wrap argument references and function calls in superfluous type declarations
Open, Stalled, MediumPublicBUG REPORT

Description

Steps to replicate the issue (include links if applicable):

What happens?:
We can see that in this case an argument reference and a function call in two different places have been wrapped in superfluous type declarations. This is because the wrong ... is being used when editing.

What should have happened instead?:
It should be a bit more difficult to make that mistake.

Software version (skip for WMF-hosted wikis like Wikipedia):

Other information (browser name/version, screenshots, etc.):
Current version.

Maybe wait until renderers and parsers have landed, as this might resolve that issue in most cases automatically.

after chatting with @gengh it seems that is not possible to assert when to trigger a warning and when not to. i would wait to see what happens when renderers and parsers are in use.
