          Issue ID: 13326
           Summary: Specification of CaseStatement doesn't fit empty case

Lets parse next D code:

 switch(n) {
 case 1:
 case 2:
   return true;
This is a valid D language construction. But documentation says that statement "case 1:" must be followed by any statement except other "case" or "default". As documentation says (http://dlang.org/statement#CaseStatement) "case ArgumentList :" is followed by "ScopeStatementList" (http://dlang.org/statement#ScopeStatementList) which is a list of any statements except CaseStatement or CaseRangeStatement or DefaultStatement. This rule conflicts with actual D language compiler. --
