    (do you want to push the ref $arref2 itself or the array's elements?)

Interesting point, but wrong, I think. The change that 5.13.7 introduces only affects the first argument of a push; subsequent arguments behave as before.

    The change that 5.13.7 introduces only affects the first argument...
    That's all clear, but I understood syphilis to be talking about a hypothetical future extension of "$arref means @$arref" to the second argument, too. Otherwise why would he have said "Given time, I expect we'll be able to..." if it applies to what is possible already? But maybe I got him wrong.
