Would not allocating the dynamic arrays a single element greater in size not
permit you to address their elements the way you'd like.
I.e.: for a five element array, allocate size 6 and get [0..5] and then use
only [1..5]? Just pretend that the  position doesn't exist.
Of Course, you'd have to be careful with low(x) as the index starting spot.
If this is too easy what am I missing?

No, there is unfortunately no way to do this.
