No, and I think it's really not confusing, since it's quite a strange
and rare thing to set __replaceable__=ObjectManager.REPLACEABLE on a
normal instance.  :-/

Think of it more like Python instances vs. classes.  Setting
__replaceable__=REPLACEABLE on a ZClass method is like setting a class
attribute in Python, then overriding it in an instance is like setting
an instance attribute.  If you set __replaceable__=REPLACEABLE on an
instance attribute, then replace it, it's like setting "foo.a = bar"
then "foo.a = boo".  The reference to "bar" disappears without any
implicit recovery.
