The whole point of this hack as I see it is to write a ton of code so in the long run you could switch the implementation from hash access (fast) to something slower but more flexible.

Being prepared to move to a tied interface later gives you that flexibility without any loss in speed or extra coding and development effort up front. Downstream that extra time will likely matter more anyways.
