Hi Tim --

+1 Yes, that would work. We should promote the #== check to a domain-specific callback to the model.

A solution I like in these situations is to add a very explicitly domain linked method to do the comparison. Don't use #= or #== - use #compareForWibbleMorphFlipTestingWith: etc. Be willing to do multiple-dispatch tricks to help discriminate what any particular class needs.

You gain some explanatory value in the method name, you have a good place to document the expectations in the method, and you can delegate to other class if needed.
