I never really played with Slate though I read its docs.  It was a bit CLOS-like?

Korz in comparison seems to retain more of the feeling of late binding, though maybe that's a misremembering.

Korz also still privileges the object/selector axis, with other aspects secondary ('context').

Ian's earlier stuff with COLA seemed to be playing in the same space not by reifying context but by reifying the dispatch mechanism. Maybe that's a dynamism step too far though.
