Judging from a lot of responses to this thread, we may as well throw 
out "constant", and "global" keywords as well because we can just use 
custom properties for every variable.

I use custom properties prodigiously. But I also use constants 
sometimes and I use globals sometimes. For me there is a appropriate 
use for all of them.  I don't agree that it's too confusing to add a 
new keyword. By the same argument we needn't have the constant keyword 
and we needn't have the global keyword. Script local too - naah - just 
use custom properties.
