Jeremie Pelletier:

 However we're 
 talking systems programming here, people want the choice between using 
 the feature or not using it :)

We aren't talking about a feature here, but a standard syntax to denote class attributes. And D being a system language has nothing to do with being free to take such kind of choices. A system language has to give freedom in how you use memory or how you use the CPU at runtime, it has nothing to do to the syntax you use to write identifiers. Such freedom isn't required.
