This isn’t much help but….

Just browsing implementors of #newStandAlone and then #initializeStandAlone (send from #newStandAlone), it looks like it has to do with creating an “example” morph that can “stand alone” in a parts bin.  Some morphs definitely act differently in the parts bin (like the trash morph).  To see the difference in one example, look at StringMorph’s #initialize vs #initializeStandAlone and note the differences between:

StringMorph new openInWorld.
StringMorph newStandAlone openInWorld.
