The isset() is too late here, because the list() will already cause an error.

I fail to understand what is difficult about it..
And "destructuring" is a common concept in programming languages.

The following already works in Javascript:
[a, b, c, d = 'else'] = ['aa', 'bb', 'cc'];
I just tried it in my Chromium console.
