Because they can't. You cannot and probably never will be able to load
two different objects called the same, like [counter]. That's not
gonna fly. So most def you need some kind of different name for each,
and voila, the rocket is out in namespace. And the larger the number
of available objectclasses, the higher the risk of such a nameclash.
Actually Max/MSP has exactly the same problem. It just comes with some
more names built-in.
