But then why such "encouragement" ? ( Proxy
paragraph )

If __noSuchMethod__ is wrong, what's the point of suggesting a way to
simulate it through proxies?

Moreover, what's the point to mark it wrong if many developers asked for it?

I also remember I have written this a while ago:

As result I see Tom's implementation with bound callbacks per property and
a freaking slower runtime every time an API would like a fancy noSuchMethod
behavior ... just saying :-)
