Sure, as was shown in my examples.
However it might be possible to require it only when it's indeterminate.

Re: toString in Object
Sorry, I'm just used to forums where posting a thread without looking for 
similar threads that have been posted before is nearly a sin.. It's just 
that this is not the first time that this has happened to me.  How about my 
module problems thread a few weeks ago?  The only people who replied were 
two guys having a pretty much OT conversation in the thread, and Walter 
asking me to clarify something, without actually acknowledging the rest of 
my post.  Then, a week or so later, I saw a few threads that talked about 
very similar things, and they sparked long, serious discussions.
