It does add something useful.  To the MPI-using programmer, it tells them what to put in their source.  How it is handled by the individual MPI implementation is left unspecified.  There are a variety of ways it could be done - if you insisted on standard Fortran you'd have a generic declaration with one specific for each supported type and kind, and with BIND(C) specifying the same external name.

Exactly. So how does it resolve any problems or in any way add anything
