Andre, you're bringing up a lot of very good issues, I really
appreciate the input.  I wish you had joined the group initially
so we didn't have to rehash some of the same arguments

In this case, though, you've posted multiple messages to
the list bringing up various nuances of the same issue - what
happens when you import or define the same identifier multiple
times?  This is intentionally left unspecified in the first draft -
for _all_ variations - and there are already tickets opened
(#112 and #158) to address whether we need to specify this.

The active tickets are in: http://trac.sacrideo.us/wg/report/1.
It would help us a lot to sort through the input if you checked
these first before posting a new question.
