We wouldn't lose that though. The "Filter" class is perfectly capable of
letting you enjoy endless amounts of unstable or "mostly stable" filters.
LPF (etc) on the other hand is supposed to be stable, dependable and
convenient. The convenience filters merely extend Filter.

I do agree that it can sound good. Some of the reverbs can under some
conditions go quite out of control as well. I've a audience applaud that. I
was a bit ambiguous about that as I was trying to livecode a more sensitive
atmospheric piece but yes, it can sound good.

I suspect so but I do believe that there are indications that some of us
were a bit loony before we started ChucKing. more research will be needed.
At the very least a control group.
