And the corresponding Adobe ticket:
The problem here is that CFML BIFs are not "first class functions", meaning - and this is a fairly layman-ish distillation of that Wikipedia article - that they have a "special" status in the language in that they don't count as functions in the sense of a function one might create with a function declaration or function expression, and aren't variables, so can't be used in situations in which the code calls for function variables.
Adobe are implementing this for CF11, according to the bugbase. Sean's asked me to make sure it's at least on your radar too.
