I unsuccessfully searched through my old mails for the surveys we did a
while ago and to see
what we concluded on that - no luck there. I recall that we banned a bound
a static method, but not sure what was agreed to be done when a
ReferenceType form "selects" an
instance method. Ban on the former case had the point going for that with
hindsight it is a
known bad form. But in the latter case, the method is simply not
applicable due to absence of
receiver and is arguably best eliminated from reckoning rather than
Perhaps the spec is consistent with the survey conclusions, but the
reference compiler is
not consistent with the spec ?
TIA for any insights/clarifications.
