I get the impression that you're doing this because I said something
like "these things should be real classes". 

But the reason to use a class is to take advantage of inheritance. Then
when we add features/attributes at the bottom of the stack, they're
automatically available at the top. With inheritance-through-wrapping,
you don't get this.

Mathematics is the supreme nostalgia of our time.
