Changed my mind; I hate it.

Back to $($(module-name).$(name).docs) or $($(module-name),$(name).docs)

$(*$(module-name).$(name).docs) might be OK, but I see no reason to push

OK, what about this rule: global variable names contain a "."
If you don't have a better place to put it, put it at the beginning.

$(.foo) is an intended-global variable expansion

$($(foo).bar) is also an intended-global variable expansion.

$(foo) is not an intended global.
