I agree,

and somebody will then come and suggest:

Lets do it this way.

var a:integer;
  some code using a;
    var a:integer;
      some code using the inner a;
  some code using the outer a;

and we are one step closer to C++ with pascal keywords.
OK, it could be done. But should it?, I think not.
