BIND(UPC) is currently just a request, not implemented (at least by
Cray). I agree that, if the standard expands to a BIND for anything
other than (C), we will need to look at the instances of BIND in the
standard and decide which ones need to be replaced by BIND(C) because
they are C-specific. However, the place to do that is in the context
of adding that feature to the base standard. I prefer to not make the
above in the TS, since it appears to be making a change in the base
standard that is unrelated to the topic of the larger edit.
