Oh, right. Didn’t realize it could be abused this way.

I guess there is no interest to define constructs like “LetOrConst LexicalBinding" and “var VariableDeclaration” just for this scenario?

(This was only send to Kevin by mistake, I hope you won’t mind it that I send it again)

I wonder why that’s the case. You can already do "var a = 1;export default a;”. Why not make "export default var a = 1;” valid?
