These or some lazy evaluation function are often used idiom, it is not umbiguos.

Again, Pivot components have no knowledge of "elements". "selectedIndex" simply maps to getSelectedIndex()
and setSelectedIndex() in the TabPane class.

These cases certainly exist, but they are not the common case.

I do understand these issues. Pivot is fundamentally a Java UI toolkit. Originally, it didn't
even have a markup language - all user interfaces were constructed entirely programmatically.
We added markup support later for the sake of convenience and readability.
