I do not argue with the spec. I note that the recommendation specifies a notion which is untenable. In order to implement the
specification one must supplant or contradict its notion in some significant manner. It does not matter what these 'sets of
names named ""' are called, but, but for the matter of binding, they behave the same as other sets of names. As such the
distinction made by the specification is fictitious or spurious. That's just the way it is.
I do take issue with claims that this set does not exist.
