Not really except that the change had been planned
for a while now. I remember this topic popped up every
now and then already in the Modula-2 days in the 80s,
when we writing compilers for then-current processors
at ETH.. without ever settling on the question of whether
this should merely stay an implementation restriction or
(one day) become part of the official language spec
(at least I have not seen it in any language specs..)

I don’t it’s a particularly interesting question. One just
needs to make a decision.
