When reviewing issue #209, we noted that hierarchical_identifier ends with an
identifier name, without an optional index.
If the hierarchical_identifier is used to refer to one of an array of modules or
primitives or named generate blocks,
then it will be necessary to add a "[ constant_expression ] " to the
This issue comes to try to identify such places.
The only real place I found in the current LRM where that is necessary is in
Syntax 17-9 ($printtimescale).
However, the construct hierarchical_name is used in C.5 ($list), C.9 ($scale),
and C.10 ($scope).
The syntax of hierarchical_name is undefined.
We had mentioned $dumpvars.
That actually uses "module_identifier" (Syntax 18-3), as does Syntax 12-8
(upward_name_reference) and Syntax 18-21 ($dumpports) and the following text. We
might want to modify those.
By the way, if we are going to leave $scale, we need to explain it better.
The description here is incomplete, and does not give enough information to
understand how to use it.
