[QGIS-Developer] Variable syntax: $ vs @

While preparing for a workshop on expressions I wonder how to explain
why some variables are referenced with the $ sign (like $geometry) while
other variables start with the @ sign, like @row_number, @layer_name.
I know that it has historical reasons and that variables with the @ sign
are newer and are implemented using a different technology.
But are there plans to get rid of the old $ sign notation and move
everything to the @ sign notation?
Just wonder how I best explain this to the participants of the workshop.
Thanks for your reply,
