This is not about the different ways we offer to
specify a boolean value.
What Andrew is referring to here is the concept
of having REVERSE boolean synonyms like
writeable <-> read only
Regarding Andrew's question, I am not certain.
The inverse synonyms are quite convenient at times,
and people are used to it, so what more precisely would
we gain by removing them?
