   enum foo = [1,2,3];
   assert(foo is foo);
   enum bla = "123";
   assert(foo is foo);

Enhancement request submitted: 

Unfortunately after I found out the second one does not have to 
do with mutability. Making foo immutable(int)[] does not change 
anything. It only works for const(char)[], immutable(char)[], and 
probably w/dchar friends. That's odd.
