The point of the defined wasn't to prevent autovivification, but to implement the grep you had in your original code. The following two snippets are equivalent.
@b = map { defined($a[$_]) ? ($a[$_]) : () } 0..5;
@b = grep { defined } map { $a[$_] } 0..5;

What you suggested (@b = map { $a[$_] } 0..5;) is *not* equivalent.
