 I'm looking for a catchy phrase denoting this D idiom:

 template Blah(Stuff)
     alias ... Blah;

verbose templated declaration.

As far as I'm concerned, we've found a winner right here ;)

What's verbose about a template with a single declaration? Verbose adj. "Using or containing a great and usually an excessive number of words"

Normally you write templated declaration using only one symbol: class Foo(T1,T2) { ... } The need to use verbose form is a sing of syntactical deficiency of the language.
