Subject: RequireLocalizedPunctuationVars allow array $a[0]

It'd be good if RequireLocalizedPunctuationVars allowed an array use like $a[0], and not treat it the same as the plain scalar $a, per below. Except I'm not sure if "my @a" is a good idea. If not then the docs in RequireLocalizedPunctuationVars could helpfully note or cross-reference about that, to explain why the policy will trap all forms of a "punctuation" name.

Yeah, using any of the special variable names should be complained about no matter the sigil because they're all treated specially in that they're all put into main:: (well, the glob is. same thing). But, yes, documentation could be added.
