I may be wrong, but I think Matthias was being *sarcastic*.  I read
what he was saying as, "If we're going to conflate the notation for
using continuations with that for functions, why not conflate the
notation for vectors with that of functions also?"  Of course, this is
the point where Paul Graham should hop in and point out that Arc does
precisely this (as I recall).
