in reply to Is this BEGIN construct supposed to work?

What makes you think the BEGIN treats %hash as if it were a file-scoped global? Try moving the my %hash; *after* the begin block.

Note also that your claim the keys are retained doesn't seem to be true:

use strict; use warnings; use 5.010; sub routine { my %hash; BEGIN { $hash{KEY} = "string"; } $hash{FOO} = "something else"; say join " ", keys %hash; } routine; routine; routine; __END__ Variable "%hash" will not stay shared at /tmp/hh line 12. KEY FOO FOO FOO
