The description of the SET command states:
/A interprets non numeric strings in value as environment variable names whether or not preceded by a percent sign
When the environment variables are a sub's parameters that is not true.

Before someone writes WAD here, let's agree that although the de facto implementation of the current technical design may indeed be correct, that doesn't make that same design in any way intuitive, sensible or user friendly.

If correctness of an implementation - given a technical design - is the criterium for being deemed "bona-fide" and the user does not have access to or influence on that design, reporting bugs will be a guessing game at best and should be removed from the forums user interface as a misleading feature.
