I believe the original post here was about cloning, presumably done via
Option+drag (on macOS, or Cntrl+drag on Win and Linux).
But another case might be scripted creation of objects that use drag
rather than the create command.
So many possibilities that I wouldn't be opposed to completely removing
arbitrary IDE-imposed limits on what people can do with their objects.
