keywords considered harmful

We have an awful lot of keywords.  Has any thought been given to not  
reserving them outright?

A user today complained that they cannot have a property 'static'.   
(I suggested they change it to 'notdynamic'.  :P)

But static is really only used as an adjective in a couple of places  
in the language.  So why do we have to ban it completely as an  
identifier?

What am I missing?
