What I mean is the current semantics of enum are as they are for historical reasons, not because they make (more) sense (than other possibilities). You showed a lot of examples that makes sense only because you are used to the current semantics, not because they are the

I use enums a lot in D. I find they work very satisfactorily. The way they work was deliberately designed, not a historical accident.

The fact that you are unaware of how it's properly done (hint: Pascal got right with 'set of enum' being distinct from 'enum') makes it a historical accident.
