Creating an array of equations in ModelingToolkit

I am trying to model a set of differential equations in ModelingToolkit. And I want to formulate it using vector variables. Namely, I will have a variable vector z = [z₁, z₂, z₃] (just a minimal example):

julia> using ModelingToolkit, OrdinaryDiffEq

julia> @parameters t

julia> @variables z[1:3](t)
(Operation[z₁(t), z₂(t), z₃(t)],)

julia> @derivatives D'~t

julia> eqs = [D(z[i]) + z[i] ~ 0 for i in 1:3]
3-element Array{Equation,1}:
 Equation(derivative(z₁(t), t) + z₁(t), ModelingToolkit.Constant(0))
 Equation(derivative(z₂(t), t) + z₂(t), ModelingToolkit.Constant(0))
 Equation(derivative(z₃(t), t) + z₃(t), ModelingToolkit.Constant(0))

However, I am failing to create an ODESystem from the equations:

julia> sys = ODESystem(eqs)
ERROR: MethodError: Cannot `convert` an object of type

Closest candidates are:

Obviously the culprit is the addition on the left hand sides (if I leave just one of the two terms, things are fine) but I do want to have the sum there? What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

Probably a bug or a limitation of the parser, since this works:

eqs = [D(z[i]) ~ -z[i] for i in 1:3]

As a side note, this doesn’t work either:

eqs = [0 ~ D(z[i]) + z[i] for i in 1:3]
