Symmetry with |this| is important because |super| uses it's sibling
|this| as the |this| in methods and accessor getter and setter calls
that result from |super| property access.

If by "self" you mean the same thing as Axel's "here", then I don't
think that is desireable as Brendan earlier pointed out.
