Hmm, what sort of confusion would it create?

I've always thought leaving the last WIDE there, marked with the used bit, 
is the better thing to do. It leaves in information about what sort of 
alias was used in the first place instead of hiding it. The confusion 
isn't big in areas where tracing is widely implemented.
