There may be confusion here as to what the feature is and what is being 
removed. There are several options:
1) Too drastic: Disallow parameters on SEQUENCE types
2) My vote: Say that SEQUENCE types with parameters are never equivalent among 
each other
3) My second vote: Do it differently for KIND and LENgth parameters, following 
the precedent of INTEGER for the former and CHARACTER for the later
4) I oppose: Jim can tell us what exactly equivalence among symbolic 
expressions we should put in.
