No, but we cat keep "USING" as an optional keyword there as it were, just 
mention it in the docs. It seems logical to me. 

// Actually I did not expected any discussion for this case. Documentations 
missed an optional keyword, documentation should be fixed. I am surprised that 
there can be any other opinions ;-)
