I think that  the *implicit static* variable is the worst specification in D.
'const/immutable(not modifiable)' and 'static(not per-instance)' is definitely
orthogonal concepts, but in your argument, they are scary mixed.

So, if we want to need static variable, language *must* require 'static'
storage class for the purpose. Otherwise, it will force us a big (and
meaningless) leap of imaging.
