Yes, if you would like to have even the "natural" behaviour, you would have to use a different datatype, namely an immutable-block datatype, which might complicate the datatype system and therefore even Rebol a bit. Another point of view may be, that the benefits of such a change can be greater than the complications caused by the datatype addition.
