I was about to create one in V10private.ztst, when I noticed it
appears to exist already on lines 230 - 250. :)

 typeset -A hash_test=(top level)
 () {
  local -Pa array_test=(in function)
  local -PA hash_test=($array_test)
  () {
   print X ${(kv)hash_test}
   hash_test=(even deeper)
   } always {
     print ${array_test-array_test not set} ${(t)array_test}
  print Y ${(kv)hash_test} Z $array_test
 print ${(kv)hash_test} ${(t)array_test}
1:privates are not visible in anonymous functions, part 3
>X top level
>array_test not set
?(anon):4: array_test: attempt to assign private in nested scope
F:future revision will create a global with this assignment
