Sorry, I think I just misread this section.  I was confused by the fact that del binds names like assignment does, so that the following tries to delete a local name and fails:

  x = 1
  def f():
    del x

In fact the documentation does say that there must be global statement in the block for del to delete a global name, so my bad.
