This is more about the fact that code becomes much less portable, and can
later become invalid because of a top level import:

func a() {
math := "is hard"

If you later import "math" into this file, this function suddenly becomes
invalid if you can't shadow. Since anyone can name imports whatever they
want, this could be a huge pain (yes you could rename the import).

A "var oa int" would still be in block scope.

Good bye block scoping.
Block scoping does not disappear if you can't declare new variables with
names identical to variables in outer scopes.
package main
var a int
func main() {
var a int // main.go:4: a redeclared in this block previous
declaration at main.go:2


Well, is it just me who doesn't call the above 'block scoping' anymore?
