I never realized this before. It seems like hole in the design. When you issue the SF line command against a data set alias, you get this message:
Code:
ISRU006 Not real data set name -  The selected option cannot process an alias data set name. 

but the message explanation only mentions renaming and deleting not being allowed.

It seems like a simple design change. Please vote for this RFE:

Code:
[url=http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/rfe/execute?use_case=viewRfe&CR_ID=82565]http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/rfe/execute?use_case=viewRfe&CR_ID=82565[/url]

You need to have a userid at IBM developerworks to vote.
