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.
