I don't think is a good idea to change the specs according to DMD. DMD is just
an implementation, an incomplete one. It's not serious to change an spec
because an implementation don't implement a feature!

I don't know if this is wrong-code or not, but I know it's not a spec issue, is
a missing feature in DMD.

So please, please, please, don't change the specs, fix the implementation.
