No matter how silly it can looks like (a = a++) it is still completely valid

Yeah, it's a valid as:

    $a = $a;

and does the same thing, which is nothing.

No; it's worse, because it can be interpreted in two different ways, which is demonstrated
by the fact that it gives different results in different languages.

That's true for different languages, but I was talking about php. In some languages even the variable $a wouldn't be legal.

However, you are correct that the confusion such assignments would raise would create problems as well.
