It's not a limitation in the implementation, it's how the language is defined. 
Java - and by proxy, C#, since MS doesn't seem to have strayed too far from
their "inspiration" - allows for multiple symbols of the same name to be
distinguished based on how they're used.  D does not.  If you have a
disagreement, it's with the spec, not the implementation.
