(j3.2006) coindexed variables in NAMELIST

Suppose you have

real :: x[*]

and try a namelist read where the input record is

&nl   x = 3.14 /

This should be fine.  But suppose you had

&nl  x[2] = 3.14 /

If you are executing the READ on image 1, this is clearly wrong since 
the variable in the input record is not the same variable as the one 
specified in the namelist statement.

However, if you execute the READ on image 2, that argument fails.  Did 
we intend for this to be allowed, or did we overlook disallowing 
coindexed designators in namelist input records?
