None for me. ;-)

One really doesn't want to put anything in Standard that isn't widely 
needed, as those names become hard to use in other circumstances. In 
particular, declarations in Standard hide anything that is use-visible with 
the same name, so adding something to Standard can be rather incompatable.

One could mitigate use-visibility problems by allowing more extensive 
overloading (for instance, of objects), but that causes rare and subtle 
cases where a program could change meaning without any indication. (Where a 
different object would be used, for instance.) That makes that too risky a 
change for Ada.
