The problem is more general. If you include low level 
capabilities across the board then you also throw out most solid 
type system advantages. In fact, in the case of D it even 
prevents a decent GC. Even to enable a decent GC you would need 
more constraints than D currently has.

The only way you can have high-level programming advantages is if 
you isolate low level programming capabilities and encapsulate 
that code with guarantees that uphold the high level type system
