comment How can I explain the meaning of LaTeX to my grandma?
I think this so far is the most compelling answer. It's not too technical, not too pictorial, and includes beauty. The chosen example (a recipe) is comprehensive.

A potential advantage of the setter/getter approach may also be its extensibility: If in a future release or another package you need to do THING whenever the dimension is changed (such as recalculate a layout) then this can be accomplished by hooking into the setter.

@That I perfecly understand; however, why not the other way round: use composed forms in the font if the decomposed are not available? Anyway, on top of all that hazzle with two forms we apparently also have different interpretations of eqivalence by different communities :-(
