I think that the spirit of my original post has kind of been lost now.
All that I am saying is that just because it *can* be done, does not
necessarily mean that it *should* be done.

At best, OP's case is a fringe case, and *probably* will cause more harm
than good in his application further down the line. If those cases are
not allowed (like Tuscanny) then, it is easier for OP to change one
variable now, than have a huge broken debugging nightmare later on. I
drew the example of SQL99 standards as I am well aware of the alarming
rate at which junior developers name date fields `date` in MySQL for
instance - perfectly legal according to MySQL, but a recipe for disaster
later on.
