Ezio Melotti added the comment:

I agree with Raymond.  IMHO the term "read-only" does a good job at conveying the fact that you can still access/read the value of the variable but you can't assign to it.  "read-only" is about /what/ you can do with the variable, even though it would also be good to clarify /why/ you can only read.
