I think @declare is a completely opaque name in this context.  I've
never heard of the @declare attribute before, so I don't associate any
meaning with it, and it's about as useful as saying that we should
change @hidden to @foobar.

I believe the vast majority of authors are similar to me, in that
@declare carries no legacy meaning, and the normal english meaning of
the word doesn't help you decipher what it does in this instance at
all.
