While committing issue #24129, I noticed the following in the execution model documentation:

==================
If a variable is referenced in an enclosing scope, it is illegal to delete the name. An error will be reported at compile time.
==================

I'm not sure what that means, as both of the following compiled fine for me under 3.4.2:

>>> def f():
...     x = 1
...     def g():
...         nonlocal x
...         del x
... 
>>> def f():
...     x = 1
...     del x
...     def g():
...         print(x)
...
