Note that the default value does not mean the same as initial value.
Without declaration: A name (used like a variable) will mean a
literal string containing that name in a script up until the line in
the script where it is used as a destination. Starting at that line
(and including that line) the name will mean a variable with the
initial value of empty. Those are compiler lines, not executed lines.
So you can use it as a literal or as a variable, but it you use it
both ways, it can be confusing.
