Well, the code bloat isn't strictly true if the Name class implements
equals(), since you will usually just be testing for equality; still,
it does add an extra level of indirection, and every indirection in an
API is an open flame in a powder magazine (it won't cause any problems
as long as you're careful and follow the proper procedures, but...).
All the best,
