Perhaps it would be helpful if you could tell us the INTENT of the law?
There are two separate issues to discuss: (1) Is the INTENT a useful one --
i.e., does it help identify or promote "good style"? (2) Is the law
an accurate reflection of the INTENT in a particular language?
My guess at the intent is something like "objects should provide a
complete interface rather than exposing part of their substructure
to direct manipulation".
