[vhdl-200x] Features from Bugzilla database

Prior to this group's existence there were other sites for proposing suggestions and bug reports. I don't see any record in this group of those suggestions being carried forward to the 'P1076 Collected Requirement' page of the Twiki (other than to 'submit an enhancement request or a bug' link), so my fear is that the suggestions will get lost yet again.

Are the current Bugzilla reports considered to be part of the collected requirements for the new standard or not?

In case the Bugzilla database suggestions are not in general being carried forward as new requirements for P1076 then, for my particular two cents, I'll re-propose my two suggestions from those earlier days again.

Suggestion #1: Allow for individual elements of a vector to be left open on a port map. See this link for more information, this is the last site I posted the suggestion to along with the use case. https://bugzilla.mentor.com/show_bug.cgi?id=275

Suggestion #2: Method to allow functions that return arrays to have knowledge of the array bounds. See this link for more information on the suggestion along with the use case. https://bugzilla.mentor.com/show_bug.cgi?id=240
