What would be the gain?  How would this simplify things?

Less pollution of the global property name space?  I wouldn't expect
people to use any let/scope/whatever container unless they really
wanted local properties - but that doesn't mean they want all their
properties to be local.  I'm not sure which behavior would be more
common and thus should be the default.

Any other benefits?
