I'd tend to agree with your vision, almkglor. It is more generic than the other way around : the former can be modelized with the latter, but the opposite is not true. I think Arc should remain generic and thus leave us the choice.

The problem is that Arc is not currently generic enough to allow both models. Only generic functions can be implemented with the primitives we're given - the core language has to be modified to allow arbitrary attachments.
