NW explained why there is no WITH at the time of Oberon[-01].
sorry, I don't have a link; maybe it was in his 'differences between M2 and Oberon.'

anyway, he said WITH is not needed. to understand that,
one must go back to the reason he introduced it in M2,
which was because he tought it could be used for code
optimization - maybe [even] via hardware support (MMU).
