What is the rationale for allowing people to name the array type. When
I originally proposed the syntax I presumed that the array name would
be kept internal and hidden from the user, just that it would exist
after that command.

What possible reason is there for allowing the user to give the array
type a name?

Have a nice day,

Some type systems have named array types, some don't. I can live happily with either. Are array types anonymous in the standard?

At any rate, the point of the remark was to take this off the table for now.

cheers
