Virtual functions are not generally thought of as introspection. There's a fairly conventional notion of "C++ without RTTI" that most people would not consider to be introspection, pretty much because there's no standard/portable/easy interface for runtime querying and possibly modification of metaobjects. I don't think BrowserUk is muddying the waters in using this common notion.
