To avoid misunderstandings, let me add that you are right (only) with
respect to variables being used _without_ declaration.

OK, but not having to explicitly "declare" variables is a feature that
most people expect from dynamic languages, so you can hardly blame them
for doing this all the time in shell.

I don't blame anybody. I'm talking about the fact that associative arrays are an exception from "what most people expect from dynamic languages", as they _have_ to be explicitly declared. This doesn't bother me, but I would prefer to have a choice between local and global declaration anyway.
