 From your example I understood you were talking about  
childclass.method.param.name masking parentcalls.property.name. That  
is perfectly possible.

The reason this is not a problem, is that you cannot access the  
parameters of one procedure in another anyway. But you can access a  
property of a parent class in the method of a child class.
