"exposing incompletely initialised objects"
Which is why in a functional language with partial application, any constructor w/ parameters is kinda silly. Sometimes I really want a partially initialized object to clone.
I've been playing around with an OO approach to Erlang, where each process is a bare loop and all state/capabilities are injected at runtime via messaging. With a prototype model it turns out partial initialization is a big win, as it allows for incremental differentiation.
