Note that I was mainly talking about any object types that are designed to
be Delphi compatible. The extra properties and methods polute the namespace,
and could get in the way of users own similar systems.

I don't care about such schemes being used in code that is not Delphi compat
(fpgui, fpweb etc). I wouldn't like it for the database components or LCL
components though.
