Shouldn't they introduce a keyword like "static if" in D. Right now it will compiles regardless if it can be evaluated during compile time or not, the user will not know. As explicit Rust is, they should add an explicit compile time version of the if and match statements as well.

They do, const and static contexts.

Ok, they solve it that way. If a function is declared const, can you feed it with run time parameters as well? If so, what is the point of declaring the function const?

I assume same as C++ constexpr, so that APIs are stable even if the implementation changes.
