Well, the point is twofold:
  1. Most importantly, we need a way for a generic DESTROY to work.
  2. Ideally we wouldn't have to name the the field more than once and only once.
The attribute semantics seem to offer the most succint possible syntax to reach both of those goals - provided it can at all be made to work, of course.

Makeshifts last the longest.
