Is the goal to make pd easier to use for complex problems, or is the goal 
to create lots of tiny classes for the sake of ideology ?

I don't mind small classes and I do have problems with certain huge 
classes being huge (in Max) and bundling lots of things that they could 
outsource, but [absattr-sub] doesn't look like one.

Do you also think that [expr] should be avoided, for the sake of making 
simple objects ? [expr] is a complex thing with complex syntax.
