Yes, but it should not be like that. If you first declare a static array and then decide to make it a dynamic array then *no* code change should be required.  But now it is for move and fillchar.

Why change the array length here? The array has a length already. What if the array had 10 elements before?

I think that this *is* guaranteed.
