I tend to agree with Robert here. So I guess the issue (tmql-reserved- 
keywords) is whether or not this really is a problem technically. If  
it is not a technical problem it seems like we should just leave it  
alone. Unless someone speaks up to say this bothers them, that is.

And, of course, we should verify whether or not this really is an issue.
