Why not change the type declaration to apply to the binding sequence as a
whole, instead of the items individually? As mentioned earlier, this makes the
type declaration more powerfull since the user can control how the
mapping(for/every/some) is run. That is, if it's run at least once, exactly
once, or any amount.

I can't see any drawbacks with going that route. I don't see any fundamental
differences for implementors to implement it(but otoh, my experience is surely
limited), nor do I find it more intrusive than changing the grammar. I would
with interest read about potential drawbacks for letting the type declaration
apply to the sequence as a whole.
