If "storage.keyName = 'value';" can create a new storage item
(persistently), won't authors expect "delete storage.keyName;" to remove it
(persistently), as a matter of consistency?

If overloading "delete" is too quirky or too hard to implement, then it
seems none of the other shorthands should be allowed either.

"He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are
healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his
own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all." [Isaiah
