How's this for a new suggestion:

Variables with the same name in connected processes are required to:

* Adhere to the same definition from the MPI implementation
* Exhibit the same behavioral semantics
* Return the same INOUT and OUT values from the relevant
  MPI_T_*_GET_INFO function, with the exception that OUT index values
  may differ between different processes

Similarly, enumerations and categories with the same name in connected
processes must also obey the above restrictions,

Advice to implementors. The intent of these requirements is to enforce
  consistent meanings of variables, categories, and enumerations
  across connected processes.  For example, variables describing the
  number of packets sent across different network device types should
  have different names to reflect their potentially different
  meanings. (End of advice to implementors.)
