ProhibitIndirectSyntax might recognise the use of indirect syntax from the double-colon bareword style like $x = somemeth Foo::Bar:: 1,2,3; since the purpose of that syntax is to force a method call not a function call. I don't know if extra funcs to the left can upset it, like foo bar Quxx:: Recognising just the basic cases of a statement or expression starting "foo Bar::" could cover many uses.
