I wouldn't worry about this. In English usage, 'as' is extremely
versatile for such a small word. My dictionary lists over a dozen
distinct meanings for it, not even counting idiomatic combinations.
Among these meanings are:

...which seems to me to cover both renamed imports and function annotations.
