Why not have your compiler give a popup when the user completes their variable definition, It would say "Do you want IntraBarPersist to ensure new ticks do not zero out this variable". It would save them typing and I will admit, I do not like typing IntraBarPersist over and over. I do not care much for having to cut and paste it too even though that is a bit faster. Obviously the compiler needs to know if this study runs as "execute on every tick". The problem with this idea is the TL_new problem. It has no way of knowing if this is the ID for a chart object creation command. Maybe the popup could include "Not recommended for variables that store the ID of TL_New, Text_New, Arw_new".
One last consideration. Consider a shortform for IntrabarPersist such as IBP. Most users will appreciate the reduction in typing.
If this suggestion goes in consider this idea for turning warnings off then on again.
