Thanks, Michele. My intention wasn't to abandon explicit self but to replace
it by a shorter and unique entity. I searched a little for similar suggestions
in the past but didn't find them so I decided to post. I admit that my
suggestion was half-baked.

But at least I learned something: a heated debate isn't bound to become an
endless thread if the OP abstains from answering idiot replies ;)
