What strict mode eval declarations did we really ban?

Waldemar's Mountain View notes said: - Agreed to disallow the use of "eval" as the name of a local variable, function parameter, etc. in strict mode.

Did we really mean that only function scoped declarations are so restricted?  What about var declarations in strict global code?

What about function declarations? Can they have "eval" as their function name if they are contained in  strict function code or in strict code in general.

The simplest story is that "eval" is banned from all declarations in strict mode code.
