That's what I thought.  Indeed, I think it's the case that EDC ensures that
such folding of local references can always or usually done.

Still, regardless of what may have been possible or desirable in principle, I
can't see changing the spec. in this area if it would cause most or even all
widely deployed implementations to become nonconforming.  So, I'm convinced by
MSM's argument that constructs like this should be dissallowed, if only for the
reason he cites.
