Issue #11048 has been updated by Yukihiro Matsumoto.


For example, `loop` method passes loop counter to the block. You can safely ignore this by arity tolerance. This is a reason behind it. But there's no benefit for keyword arguments tolerance, as far as I see, but demerit of late error detection.

Bug #11048: blocks raise on missing and extra keyword args
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/11048#change-52909

blocks intentionally tolerate arity mismatches

```
irb(main):001:0> proc{|a, b| [a, b]}.(1)
[
  [0] 1,
  [1] nil
]

irb(main):003:0> proc{|a, b|[a, b]}.(1, 2, 3)
[
  [0] 1,
  [1] 2
]


```

so why not missing keyword args?

```
irb(main):002:0> proc{|a:, b:|[a, b]}.(a: 1)
ArgumentError: missing keyword: b


irb(main):004:0> proc{|a:, b:|[a, b]}.(a: 1, b: 1, c: 1)
ArgumentError: unknown keyword: c

```
