The only reason why I would keep them is that for fast access to variables when experimenting/developing (without needing to declare something first), but for proper packages it is far better come up with your own private scratch names.
I agree with this, but I don't think we should remove anything that's been around for a while now. I suggest removing the just-added clist scratch variables and keeping what remains as they are -- but not adding any others.
