Yep, I think we are mostly in agreement, just caling it differently.
You need to have toplevel stuff somewhere, such as FNID 0.
What I am bit concerned about is storing function local data
associated with toplevel variables.  If done using arrays, we will have
#functions*#toplevel vars memory consumption that might turn out to be
serous for LTO...

Sure, we can do things like arrays for function local stuff + hashtables
for such global stuff, but it is not much better than that what we have
right now (ie one dense UID space for each function, with static
variables having different UIDs).
