The compiler has no way to understand what is the 'desired' result in this
case. There are formally/structurally equivalent sane cases where the
desired result is the one obtained. This rules out the possibility to make
it an compiler error. Then there are cases, where a programmer makes a
mistake which misses the desired result. The compiler can never ever
discriminate the two situations and thus it is not rational to ask it for
doing that.
