Using the def form, with the specific metadata ^:field causes the cljs compiler

(ns test-def)

(def ^:foo e identity)
e
; test_def.e = cljs.core.identity;
; test_def.e;

(def ^:field f identity)
f
; test_def.f = cljs.core.identity;
; self__.test_def.f;
; Uncaught ReferenceError: self__ is not defined
