I hope those sentiments are resisted. Having something like
a declaration that is transport or operating environment
independent seems a lot simpler, reliable, and understandable.
If the declaration is redundant, it is harmless.

For what it is worth, I'm in agreement. In practice I don't see
much need for such a feature and there exist straightforward ways
of handling such problems when they do exist.
