Same for class constants.

The null coalescing operator should not be used to check whether a constant has been defined or not - that's what the defined() function is for.

We can use isset() for variables as well :) Why not to make it work with constants? Anyway, static class properties are more important.

Why the issue was closed?
 [2017-04-11 13:26 UTC] tpunt@php.net
This issue was fixed in the 7.0, 7.1, and master branches. It should therefore be in the 7.0.19 and 7.1.5 releases next month.
