No, it wasn't intended as a comment on anything at all.

They are five randomly generated methods (or, if you prefer,
"methods"), generated a few years ago by Philip Earis for a curious
composition. I have so little intuition as to how this method
extension stuff works that I really have no idea what does or does not
extend, but it seemed a plausible, if ham-handed, way to get at some
evidence of whether or not it is true that "most methods don't extend"
(the answer to which may be self-evident to those who do understand
how extension works, but sure isn't to me).
