Because it requires writing a lot more code, just to get the Ref. Count, and 
as I stated in another mail, you don't have direct field access.

With best regards,

AFAIR there already were several debates on ARC Objects that seem do be
a "modern" language feature but in Pascal language they are considered
to provide lots of pitfalls.

Why not use "interface" to add ref-counting to an object ? This seems to
work nicely even though the name "interface" in not "speaking" on that
