This is an incredibly huge pain to implement in the face of dynamic 
chages, because to do dynamic changes properly you need a useful concept 
of the "old style", and you're completely breaking that because the "old 
style" suddenly has circular dependencies on itself.

This approach is not workable as currently written, imo.
