That changes the type of the translation unit, from a "module
implementation unit" to an "module internal partition unit". The
semantics of those two types of units are fundamentally different.

That's why we've been avoiding the term "implementation partition",
because it implies that it's a partition of the implementation unit,
when that's absolutely not the case.
