You are taking it out of context. Please re-read my messages again
carefully. What I kept on saying is that you can't *CLAIM* that we'll
all be saved from the "trouble of having to hunt down all kinds of
functions" with your proposed solution. You can only *CLAIM*
that *IFF* you enforce your solution and apply it universally.
Obviously, you can't.

Anyway, I'll leave this discussion now. Good luck!
