Yes, this sounds reasonable, IMHO.

Yeah. I think Travis is right. A set of rules clearly stating the
situations where rank-0 arrays have to become scalars maybe worth the
effort. Travis already has the above list and now is just a matter of
discovering other exceptions that should go there. So, please, if
anybody comes with more exceptions, go ahead and propose them.
