Not to mention internal compiler variable descriptions that incorporate this assumption that would face being changed.  [I?m not sure what you mean by ?construct name?.  We have a syntax term<construct-name>, but it has nothing to do with this example. Construct names do not have ranks.]

I was sloppy.  By a construct name, I meant a construct entity that is a name.  Something like an associate name, which is similar to the case here.  Associate names can have rank.
