Generally speaking, you are describing a C coding style anyway. The
Fortran standard at the least discourages using function return values
as error codes. There are infinite debates (which I won't participate in
if this restarts one) about exactly what cases it is legal in, but by
making even some cases illegal, the standard can be said to at least
discourage the practice. It would be highly inconsistent for the
standard to then go and specify the practice for final procedures; sure
the standard is inconsistent about some things, but don't hold your
breath waiting for this particular inconsistency to happen.
The proposed TR does precisely that - I hope that you will comment
appropriately through J3.
Do you have a reference to that as a policy? I don't need to know
the reasons, as I know enough of them.
