Yeah. Well, if we get the error message. It’s better than nothing. I don’t know the specifics about compilers and rules and what not. But it seems to me it would be opening an exception just for that specific case. And that might be something that would make the compiler rules more complex. So if we don’t get the message, we get more consistency in the rules, but on the other hand we make it easier for people to accidentally get unexpected behaviour.
