I'll note that in the Python community we consider it an advantage of using 
attributes/properties versus accessor and mutator methods. This distinction 
between an attribute- versus method-centric object oriented programming 
language has been discussed in many articles.

Note that we provide several other mechanisms to extend functionality; for 
example, the event system. Overall Zope (like most other Python code) is 
optimized to work with attributes/properties. We just like them too much! :-)
