I think it would be a welcome addition to gdb.

The dbx syntax doesn't seem particular gdb-ish to me, but it would do.
HPD-like syntax along the lines of "" has also been

If you implement this in linespecs, which is the natural approach, then
it will automatically work for disassembly.

For "backtrace", I guess you mean that at least ambiguous symbols should
be printed in this syntax in a backtrace.  I'm sure that is doable as

I am not sure whether anybody is working on this.  At the very least,
please file a bug.
