Hi,SQL Server is certainly fond of introducing the shortened versions of keywords. For example, these statements are equal:EXECUTE procedure_nameEXEC procedure_name
In this case typing the whole "EXECUTE" keyword seems redundant.With that said, I would like to propose the creation of a new keyword, an alternate for CREATE OR ALTER:*drumroll*
CREALTER - a simple, yet elegant way of delivering the same statement. Easily readable and understandable even for novice T-SQL Adepts.
I think it would be a worthy addition to the SQL SERVER Syntax.

3. Really so lazy to type some more letters, so that you need shortcuts? Then you have the wrong job.
Note: Some of this "feature" are from Sybase times; MS may remove then in future.
