 From Sylvain's message:

I've been wanting to remove forbid this for a long time, but didn't knew
how to identify JS functions with parameters, in order to issue a proper
error message if this buggy construct is used. Looking a bit closer to
Rhino, I now found it: NativeFunction has a getArity() method which is
the number of parameters. We could then raise an error if getArity() != 0.

+1 as long as we don't lose the all-out ability to write functions with 
parameters (which I don't think will happen, will it?), just to turn off 
the positional-parameter functionality between flow and sitemap.

Sorry for the bad English, I just woke up :)
