I agree now that the doc should be clearer (and this issue reopened). For one thing, the exact CPython behavior is an implementation issue rather than a language requirement. Which is to say, its behavior is allowed but not required. I believe an implementation *could* use dicts for function local namespaces. Synchronization would not then be an issue.

I will try to work up a concrete suggested replacement.
