It'd be good if interpolated variables and expressions in double-quote strings were parsed to a PPI::Statement or similar sub-nodes. With @{[]} tricks like ``print "@{[1+2**3]}"'' I believe it's possible to have quite complicated expressions which perlcritic could helpfully look into, notice which variables are used, etc. I'm not sure what that would mean for compatibility if PPI::Token::Quote::Double suddenly had child nodes. I'd guess most things would still be fine, even if it meant a PPI::Token was no longer direct source code bytes.
