I was responding to your initial assertion in your first message, which
didn't show that form. It just said

I was pointing out how you can do that without having to "do it again."

Perhaps you could clarify what you're actually proposing. Your first
message talked about individual variables for the parts of `obj`;
subsequently you seemed to be talking about creating a new object
(combining object initializers with destructuring)...?
