Yup. In exactly the same way that Smalltalk is syntactical sugar for

No. But that's mostly a management issue. You cannot enforce anything
in a 20 man year project. Not if you don't want to turn it into a 40
man year project. You can try to motivate developers into wanted
behaviour at best :)

Do you have a specific example?

Fine. But as long as you do not give examples, all I can do is note
your opinion. Of course, I have another opinion :-)
