Completely agree. 
When I see [foo new] I think C++.
When I see [[foo alloc] init], I think obj-C.

I recently had a case where I needed alloc alone and init’ed the object later. 
The necessity arose out of some cruft with querying bundle instances and I had 
manage my own list of bundles. Just querying a bundle by ID gave a new instance.
