9.4.4 Shorthand for assignments

Consideration was given to having some short of shorthand for assignments where source and target have commonality as in statements such as
A(I) := A(I) + 1;
But maybe the thought of C++ was too much. In any event no agreement that it was worthwhile was reached and there was certainly no agreement on what syntax might be acceptable. (See AI-187).
