Yeah I agree with that, in a way to make C++ stricter, safer and
simpler. I would add also: "return of reference to local variables":

int & foo()


     int i;

     return i;


Apparently this issue is not even detected by Visual Studio C++ in 2022.

But again, C++ needs to be simplified, not made more complex, or else
it's a "time bomb" for C++ quite simply.
