I'm not confused.  I understand this worldview.

I'm just arguing that this worldview is less understandable for new users and 
maintenance programmers than it would be to leave them distinct (or to "unify" 
them by providing an API like "lookup" which never calls the result of an 
adaptation).  The conceptual beauty of how they might be otherwise similar is 
meaningless to new users and maintenance programmers.
