I say: Don't use Damian's "Best Practices".

Write code that is as easy for others to read. How that works out in practice
depends on the situation. I have no problems with people using AUTOLOAD, so
long as AUTOLOAD checks its parameters; that way, what you're doing doesn't
it doesn't change the interface to your class, and only exposes the things you
document anyway.
