It seems to me that the difference between the placement of the parameter declarations has only minor
For example, if you declare a parameter in the module header, then you can use it in an ANSI port
I don't see a strong justification for making the parameters declared inside into local params.
So I would be inclined not to force that restriction on parameters in the inner scope as well.
Can anyone explain the reason?
