Actors can't have operations. But if you create a class with operations and change it to be an actor it keeps the operations. Just to continue you list of strangenesses.

That would excite me if it also had a red nose that lit up.

You can easily show that with a shape script.

Everything should be able to have everything.

Separately you can create modifiable rule sets that implement a standard.

For example, in our case, we decided to remove the Actor - ActorInformation spurious dichotomy and just allow the information aspects of actors to be expressed as Features of the Actor.

Users should be given the most potential freedom, but initially restrained by the rules; until they are able - by their own want and ability - to modify the rules to suit their evolving needs and understanding.

I wonder how that would go as a feature request.  It would make the release notes more fun.
