Objects are not handles, no need for glossary, just call it what it is.

    Objects are not handles

    Right, and I didn't say they were. A "handle" (in this sense) is a "reference to a reference", or a "double-indirect reference". In the technique I propose, the references are actually symbolic references, because they're names — specifically, class names.

    no need for glossary

    You may not have needed it; I provided it as a convenience for those who aren't as clueful as you.

    We're building the house of the future together.
