Replace some Lookup Columns using new formula syntax
I find myself wanting to access some Parent columns without having to declare them as a Lookup column in the Child table first. This would clean up some tables/view forms and possibly bring more clarity to formulas.

In a formula I would like to be able to just do [Parent].[Name] to access a Parent record's Name column.
Or potentially [Parent].[Grandparent].[Name]

In other words, make it work kind of like how you access Fields in a Class of an OO language.
