There has been some confusion among users regarding mixing of 
measure functions and param functions.

Confusion regarding the "min" and "max" measure functions with 
param functions has been a repeat problem.

As it stands now, they are treated as equivalent, and share the 
same dispatcher.  That means the same name cannot be used for 
both.  The original intent was that measure functions could be 
used in param expressions, but that doesn't work as intended 

To avoid confusion, I am considering making them separate and 
non-interchangeable.  This will mean you can have a parameter 
function and a measure function of the same name.  For example, 
both called "max".
