Nonsense :)

But, seriously, the point about everybody putting stuff into standard

Well, Objective-C had the concept of "category" [1] for the longest time, and it hasn't collapse on its own weight yet. If you have access to Mac OS X, take a look at how many methods are stuffed in the root class, NSObject...

But, to paraphrase Stan Lee, with great power comes great responsibility... "How you Use Categories" [2]
