A quick comment/addition to the first two paragraphs: in cases where the common values are constant (or near-constant), one alternative is to wrap those values in a class and provide accessors. This provides commonly available values without global.

    You're just replacing global scalars with global subs.

    Except for slowing down your code and making it longer, that isn't much of an improvement.
