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
only option or the option that makes the most sense.

Is it better to redesign enum semantics now? Probably not, but I'm just
saying :)
