You can't do that today and you won't be able to do this tomorrow. I
fail to see the change.

If the design without traits uses duplication (as today in some parts)
the flattened design will look _exactly_ the same.
If the design without traits puts methods too high in the class
hierarchy (as today in some parts) the flattened design will look
better (methods are where they should be and make sense).
Again, traits change nothing, even improve the situation (the current
one being far from clean).

We won't know how well it works until we do it. My experience working
with traits so far it that they work as advertised.
