[fpc-pascal] Delphi mode for new features?

Hi All,

My question is inspired by some things asked here last weeks.

As I see (may be mistaken), some _new_ Delphi features are available 
only in $MODE DELPHI.
This way lead to divergence of two compilers.
Why do not implement them in FPC "by default" (when it not constrained 
by basic concepts and legacy code) to take the road of convergence?

I.e. record functions/constructors may reduce the code and make it more
