I'm trying to wrap my head around the reasoning for this also and not sure I'm following. In general, I don't think we protect all that hard against functions being called with tokens that aren't allowed by the parse. So, basically, this feels like it's not really the right place for these checks and if there is an existing problem then it's probably with the grammar... Does that make sense? Thanks! Stephen
