I think very highly of all of your postings but this time I have to disagree.

AFAIK, the original creator of MVC was Trygve Reenskaug and not the group involving Dan Ingalls and Alan Kay you are referring to.

Also, said Squeak group still maintains both MVC and Morphic.
Moreover, even if they exclusively went the Morphic direction that would just tells you that for their particular purposes the direct manipulation and stepping paradigm does the job.
It does not, however, imply that Morphic is the better choice in all circumstances.
In fact, the current Squeak way of supporting Morphic is badly in need of a polish, AFAIC.
It is way to slow for anything but the most minute toy examples.

Peace and Luck,
