That was my initial reaction as well.  However, I don't see any 
prohibition.  And gfortran, which accepts the TS syntax, allows it.    I 
guess the counterargument is that it is irregular to disallow it.  We 
allow CLASS(*), for example.

If someone wants to go to the effort, I would not object to making 
IMPLICIT (other than IMPLICIT NONE) obsolescent.
