It is a strong point.

On the other hard keeping the language clean is an important responsible 
task we have. We never planned to be compatible with Delphi.NET. (I have 
never considered Delphi.NET a real Pascal implementation; it departs 
rather far from what Wirth designed). While .NET features will spread to 
native code I'd like to consider native code features only. Some may 
originate from .NET in the end, and can be considered, but only because 
thy have become native Delphi features.
