Because it was not needed until now ;-)

The proper way to access properties in the class hierarchy is 'meta'.
'meta' is also used internally by 'var:'.
Though it only returns a value, it can be used for the purposes you have
in mind if you reserve a cell (also a "variable" in picoLisp terms) for
(var counter 0)
(meta MyObj 'counter) # -> (0)
(var: counter) # -> (0)
(car (var: counter)) # -> 0
(inc (var: counter)) # -> 1
