FWIW, I think such an idea is useful (and also easy to implement,
so another +1 from me).

Here I'd simply use:
! grep -n "^declare[ ][ ]*" ../*.sh ../../*.sh
And similarly for the tests below.
In addition, the globs above still miss some files ('perf/perf-lib.sh'
and 'valgrind/analyze.sh', for example); so we might want to improve
it, using, say, "git ls-files" (or find(1), in case the test is to be
run also from distribution tarballs).
