Alias expansion is useful but when aliasing a single module, it can be harder to read with unnecessary braces.

# preferred

alias ModuleA.Foo
alias ModuleA.{Foo, Bar}

alias ModuleA.{Foo}

Like all Readability issues, this one is not a technical concern. But you can improve the odds of others reading and liking your code by making it easier to follow.
