Aliases have to be valid pf macro/table keywords, iirc hypens are not
allowed there.

MACROS
  Macros can be defined that will later be expanded in context.  Macro
  names must start with a letter, and may contain letters, digits and
  underscores.  Macro names may not be reserved words (for example pass,
  in, out).  Macros are not expanded inside quotes.
