Agreed. The "moving" emphasis is wrong.

Yes. I advocated for some time aligning Cayenne context API with JPA  
in this respect, that defines two methods for sucking a non- 
persistent object graph into a context - "persist", which is roughly  
the same as "registerNewObject", and "merge", which is somewhat  
similar to "localObject", but works recursively.
