In the talk "Changes to JavaScript, Part 1: EcmaScript 5", Mark Miller
states that ES5 Default contains four static scope violations (direct link: He also states that
ES5 Strict corrects these violations, making ES5 Strict is a statically
scoped language. I don't understand how that can be true, since it is
possible to dynamically add bindings to the global environment by creating
new global properties (during code evaluation). Isn't this a static scope
violation, too?
