for now the idea is very simple: for active prefixedattributes "procedure
modifier []" will be inaccessible (which means breaking for backward
compatibility). This is the reason why $prefixedattributes in
DELPHI/DELPHIUNICODE may be not enabled by default. In Delphi mode
"procedure modifier []" is used very rare (if ever?) so I see no real
problem (even if the problem exist can be simple eliminated by switching
off prefixedattributes).

anyway maybe is possible to use both "[]" at the same time, but that need
to be checked.
