This seems like a reasonable statement, but then it seems just as reasonable
to say that one wants to bind different conceptual approaches together. There
are some arguments on both sides where language design is concerned.

I suppose not, do we have any stats on:

1. How many people actually use it
2. How many people have complained about the syntax
3. How many processors implement it correctly

I for one know I never use xsd:unique cause it bugs me syntactically. I seem
to remember having seen it mentioned in various naming and design rules as
being disallowed, so that might be an example of community opinion on it.
