True. In the strict sense any instance variable is available over
*this*, even if it merely a base class. I suppose the reason is
consistency. A new programmer may be confused may be confused if one
instance variable can be assigned this way, but not another one. I've
tested *base* instead, but *base* may be only used inside of a method,
property, or constructor. What a pity...
