Suppose you have a class
Now one question: the compiler allows a call like this?
(Hint mine no)
So I would say a _possible_ policy is to not allow to register say
if is already registered a function with a "compatible" signature.
This is both more safe (IMHO) and avoid complications in the API
Just an opinion
