... My preferences are: 1) (Default to global) words 'if and 'true shall not be local in: [if true [true]] and in similar situations 2) (Default to local) we need local words sometimes. The most convenient Rebol method for local word definition is as follows: make object! [a: 1] We do not need to specify what shall be local in this case, do we? Moreover, this proves, that the "default to global" rule has got exceptions. 3) I think, that a suitable mix of these two may be the best solution, which may work even without the need to have USE or /LOCAL
