While I agree this functionality isn't strictly necessary I think it makes sense from a semantic point of view. I ran in to this issue today while writing some code and I simply expected the negative syntax to work, given that the format string syntax otherwise very closely resembles standard array and attribute access.

It would be nice to see this make it in eventually for consistency's sake.
