Well, since access to intermediate objects (constants, types,
variables) is now no longer allowed since the most recent
(2016) change to the Oberon language spec, there cannot
really be ANY assumptions anymore which ONLY make
sense in the context of the caller ... since the “context”
itself can no longer be accessed ;-)

The only remaining POSSIBLE assumption would therefore
have to be something that specifically has to do with the
way the CODE of the surrounding code is implemented.

Of the 17 local procedures (of 850 total) in the Oberon
system, I have not found one that meets that description.
