Doesn't seem that different from the C# concept of properties, except with a bit less language support. To me it doesn't seem that worth worrying about the overhead of trivial function calls in the general case.

But they often aren’t trivial, e.g. like breeze conversions to Scala data structures that appear like simple attribute accesses and don’t indicate at all that really they are complex function calls with important performance considerations.
