What do you mean "need"?  A tremor starts in the little toes, sweat
breaks out, and incomprehensible moans escape if the structs don't
behave like procedures?  :-)

All this discussion indicates to me that the struct mechanism in
MzScheme is way overblown beyond its original idea, and could be
decomposed into several orthogonal abstractions.
