Why would one want that? Couldn't you use DomainsRenamer ?

I wasn't aware of this option... it felt natural and consistent with e.g. AsyncFIFO to set the clock domain explicitly. As a beginner, I developed the habit of having an explicit domain for most of my modules. I found it easier to reason about, but that might be a bad habit for larger-scale projects or libraries (I guess domain name collision).

I'll start to use DomainRenamer, feel free to close this PR.

Generally the nMigen convention is that modules that work only in one clock domain use the sync domain and are then used in combination with DomainRenamer. The AsyncFIFO spans multiple clock domains and is therefore different.

What @anuejn said is accurate.
