comment What do you call “X <= $foo <= Y” comparison?
Thanks @dan04. In this question it's called "chained comparison operator" with Perl 6, Python, Mathematica, BCPL, and Icon mentioned.

comment What's the real benefit of meta-modeling?
Thanks, that's a good use-case and sounds usesfull: analysis of existing systems instead of top-down über-modeling for planned systems.

comment What version control system can manage all aspects?
If you are seriously interested in the topic, you should have a look at research in versioning file systems and in versioning databases, which go beyond version control systems for source code.

comment What's the real benefit of meta-modeling?
Do modelers actually create meta-models on M0? As far as I understand EMF and Ecore, it is hard-coded in the software. You make use of XMI to create concrete models, but you never do meta-modeling (unless you are one of the developers of EMF).

comment Which popular object-oriented languages support readonly methods?
@David: As far as I understand object-orientation, details of implementations, such as lazy initialization, should be hidden: an object is a piece of data together with methods. I'd count readonly methods to the data part, so you can better separate data and behaviour. However most OO languages seem not support this separation: you must write ugly getters, setters, and const functions mixed with methods that actually do some business logic :-(
