I don't really see why mutable structs would necessitate pass by reference. Java developers are used to pass by value semantics and there is a well-known, but admittedly ugly pattern for pass by reference (use an array or mutable wrapper).

The reference question comes up even in all-final value types. But I'll pose that question in a separate thread.
