The "with" construct can be very handy, but should be used with caution,
like a lot of other constructs, declarations, etc. E.g. for symbols
present with the same name in different units, depending on the order of
the uses declaration the one or the other will be picked up.
The IDE codetools provide already a powerful checking tool: you stop
with the cursor on a symbol, and it tells you which reference will be taken.
More than that would be an overkill: if you don't take the time to
verify that your "with" does what you expect, you can't blame neither
the construct nor the compiler.
Just my 5 cents
