Yes, this is expected behaviour.

I would have thought that I could declare a static array in a class
with an index in the declaration, but I can't. I must instead use
array() to specify the desired index and value. Nowhere in the docs,
that I could find, does it say that you can't specify an index in a
static array declaration.

I saw in another bug that PHP does not allow the use of variable data
at compile time, and I guess since static variables are dealt with at
compile time, you can't be assigning data to a variable index. But even
if the index is define()ed beforehand, it still doesn't work.

Reproduce code:
define('INDEX', 'index');
class myclass {
// Does not with either the string 'index' or
// the constant INDEX.
public static $variable['index'] = 'some value';
//public static $variable = array('index' => 'some value'); This does
echo myclass::$variable['index'];

Expected result:
some value

Actual result:
P error: p error, unexpected '[', expecting ',' or ';' in ...
on line 6
