 It's not because it makes unit testing easier; it's because !WordPress was
 PHP4 compatible for a majority of it's life.

 In !WordPress 3.5, the WP_Post class is final; WP_Internal_Pointers is
 final; WP_Screen is final; plenty of places where the intentions are not
 to allow extension or poisoning of object data.

 There are mixes and matches of private variables and data, appropriately
 paired with magic getters and setters, that (just like with this ticket)
 make the points your trying to prove inaccurate for the purpose of this
