The static local functions could be useful, but I still prefer enclosing a using block variable in braces. I find this makes for eaier to understand code as it's obvious where the variable is being declared and what scope it has. It's scope is declared by the using block and is explicit. This way the scope is implicit so not as clear.
"There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first method is far more difficult." - C.A.R. Hoare
