Minimalist Classes

So to clarify, is the dynamic super issue the whole reason that Jeremy's dynamic construction of classes is considered not doable? Because it seems to me that super may not be worth that trade off. Besides, Python's super implementation requires the hardcoding of the class and that doesn't cause much of a stink. If something similar would give us this super-intuitive syntax and the ability to build classes from arbitrary object literals, it seems like not a big loss.
