Going even further, the module toplevel is almost not described in the
report at all.  Can we redefine a previously defined identifier?  Can
we shadow an import with a definition?  What is the scope of a module
level macro definition?  Can we intersperse definitions and expressions?
I'm sure I can think of more unanswered questions in the same vein.
