Accessibility modifiers on static members


Is there a reason accessibility modifiers on static members are explicitly not allowed? The two concepts are completely orthogonal, it makes no sense that something should have to be public by virtue of it being static.

Obviously, this would likely be a compile-time only feature, as private is currently.

The work item is closed because it is implemented or decided not to implement the access modifiers on static members.

That would be very nice if we can have the Private Static functions just like in JavaScript.
