inconsistency with "readonly" and scope

"declare" when used in a function acts like "local", and creates a variable
with scope local to that function.  So does "declare -r".  But "readonly",
which is otherwise the same as "declare -r", creates variables with global

Is this intended?

Tested with 2.05b, 3.something, and 4.2.20.
