However, in almost all cases a hash based solution is done is such away it has all the disadvantages of not using strict, and none of the advantages.

I disagree. Most beginner's uses of soft references are along the lines of

while (<>) { while (/([a-z]+)/g) { my $word = $1; $$word++; } } print "I've seen the word 'compiler'\n" if $compiler; # similar checks for a few other variables here

If you do that with a hash instead, you have a very clear benefit: you don't run into the risk of accidentally changing any our-scoped scalars in the current package.
