I'm basically proposing that the data stored by each object is treated as a tiny database. There are standardized techniques for answering queries in a database, which could also be built into the language. This would also reduce the potential for error.
Don't structs/records perform that functionality admirably well? Isn't the dot-notation a standard syntax?
Edit: Ah, I see orthodontist has discussed the dot-notation above.
