Sorry about that.  NO, with comments.

I have not had time to think about this area, but I agree with Reinhold
Bader and Robert Numrich, for similar reasons to them.  I have rechecked
the WG5 Garching minutes and, while we did not formally agree to Reinhold's
point (2), I recall there being a consensus that it was a necessary step
within J3.  From my experience of MPI and OpenMP, Robert has pointed out
the two most difficult parts of N1858 to specify semantically, unless we
both have missed something subtle.

We need to go cautiously, and watch out for the semantics.  Specifying
the syntax is the easy bit.
