self in slot initializations

Does anyone know why flavor slot initialization forms are not
executed in an environment in which self is bound to the object being
initialized in New Flavors (7.2)? This fact has greatly complicated the
way I construct composite objects where a composite object creates its
components and the components need to know who their parent is,
especially when the purpose is to allow for a whole family of composite
objects with interchangable component flavors.
Isn't this what the MAKE-INSTANCE method is for?
