in thread The fallacy of the *requirement* for read-only instance variables.

You're 180 degrees off in your first sentence. The whole point of that paragraph is you cannot use the object handle as the unique id. That's why I consistently use distinct terms like "unique id" and "object handle", to avoid this kind of confusion.

I started a reply and realized I was just repeating myself. I will be content to stand on what I've written already.

    Hm . That seems like a cop out given that I didn't equate unique ids with object handles in the first sentence, or in the first paragraph, or anywhere in the first 5 paragraphs.

    So it remains that no one has yet demonstrated even a good use for ROIAs. Much less a necessity for them.
