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.
