in thread Shouldn't LITERAL references be readonly? (updated)

They're constructors for containers, not values. I'm not sure what the value would be to make [] and {} create singleton immutable containers.

    I'm talking about the container not the content.

    I can't see a reason why one would want to change the alias of the container, hence this should throw an error.
