This is contrary to what's written in the design doc in the wiki. It
also invalidates the wildcard normalization rules defined in that doc
(and implemented by the parser), making the wildcard semantics
inconsistent. For example, the rule that a trailing /** should be
converted to a /* clearly no longer works after this change

Please update the doc and make the design consistent before implementing
major semantic changes.
